OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] SharePoint: Request failed since 23 Nov 2020

Hi,

 

I need help, I keep on getting this message almost everytime I tried to refresh  data since 23rd Nov 2020 in both Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service. This occurs randomly across all established reports in my workspace as sometimes it worked but the other times did not although no changes were made.
I am using '= SharePoint.Contents()' to access the sharepoint folders as my source.

Any idea what's causing this?

I have tested on my side, both SharePoint.Contents() and SharePoint.Files() work well.

@v-lili6-msftThank you for the reply.
In the power query view, the initial SharePoint.contents() works well, but after several refresh it randomly give me that specific error.
Can you give me an idea of the nature of that error? is it because the data it loads was too much or is it more like credential issue?
