Well if it was running fine before, hmm... You could check the Issues forum here:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/idb-p/Issues

And if it is not there, then you could post it.

If you have Pro account you could try to open a support ticket. If you have a Pro account it is free. Go to https://support.powerbi.com. Scroll down and click "CREATE SUPPORT TICKET".

@Greg_Deckler 

Thanks for your help

On Power BI support homepage, we have following message under Awareness section -

 
Power BI customers with Premium Capacities using SharePoint Online as a data source may see refresh not complete successfully with the following message - "The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send". Power BI and SharePoint Engineers are investigating the issue and an update will be provided soon.
 
So, rest assured, I now know that Power BI team is working on the sharepoint issues.

Re: Error when connecting to sharepoint (through dataflow)

I have been struggling with this error for the past week. It has beenn really nerve racking as it seems to have gotten progressively worse.

 

I'm also seeing some interesting behaviors like below where it's scheduled for 30 min increments, but then runs again right after completing successfully.

 

I'd estimate that the dataflows are failing 50% of the time. The 1 error occuring on an entity level (95% are successful)

"Error: Data Source Error : SharePoint: Request failed: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send"
