Fix #3: Make sure the game and software are updated.
Keeping everything in your PC or console up-to-date is one way of keeping bugs at bay. If there’s no on-going server troubles and restarting the game does not help, make sure that you check if there are any game updates that you are yet to install at this time.

Fix #6: Manually change your DNS settings.
Some players have successfully fixed this error by using another set of DNS servers. There are times that the DNS servers of your ISP may fail or suffer some downtimes. To see if you have such an issue, change the DNS settings on your console or PC and see if that will help. If you have no idea how to do this, use Google search for instructions.
Fix #7: Re-login to your profile or account.
