The type of blob in the container is unrecognized by this version



I have just started playing around with Power BI. When trying to connect to my Azure Blob storage it gives me the above error. Can someone assist with what could be the issue? I have block and append blobs in the container.


Status code: 409, description: 'The type of a blob in the container is unrecognized by this version.'.


I am not sure what you would need to troubleshoot the issue?
