Unable to connect to Excel on Sharepoint using Web connector

I need to connect my PowerBi to an excel file housed on sharepoint.  I'm following instructions to open the file in app, use the "Copy Path", take off the ending, and pasting URL into get data via Web option.  I keep getting this error.

I'm having the same problem. Nothing I try will work to get PBI to read an Excel file on our Sharepoint site.

I've tried every permutation I can think of to connect PBI to an Excel file on our Sharepoint site. I've used the Web connector, and Sharepoint folder connector. I put in just our Sharepoint site URL which is like Myorg.sharepoint.com. I've watched at least 3 video tutorials and found at least 5 pages on how to do this and nothing works. I've tried various combinations of my credentials, including my MS Office creds (which works to sign into PBI), and nothing works.

The error usually is:

Microsoft.Mashup.Engine1.Library.Resources.HttpResoure: Request failed: OData version: 3 and 4, Error: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server error. (500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR). OData Version: 4, Error: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server error. (500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR). OData version: 3, Error: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server error. (500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR) "

but is sometimes it's this: "We're unable to connect. Please delete your credentials and try again later."

Do we need to set up our Sharepoint site to accept incoming connections to PBI? Or set up something else?
