Just wanted to jump in here for anyone also running into this error to note that this is a known error relating to connecting to WooCommerce accounts specifically.

As noted on WooCommerce’s documentation, there a few reasons this error typically occurs:

  • If you are using GoDaddy Managed WordPress/WooCommerce Hosting
  • Your web host or web server has some kind of firewall or security appliance that is preventing the authentication request from completing.
  • An HTTPS/SSL configuration issue exists. Review the SSL Check Failing information to potentially resolve this issue.

You can read more about this and the steps to troubleshoot this error here: WooCommerce > Authentication Errors :)
