Dashboard riddled with "System Error" messages

On a number Data Studio reports I've put together, I get seemingly random "System Error" messages when connecting to Google Sheets (see screen shots).

 

The weird thing is that if I refresh the data in the report, a *different* set of charts will show the "System Error" message. If I copy the report to a new file, the errors go away temporarily but eventually come back.

 

Any ideas?

@Adam R I get that all the time!  I just refresh the actual data sheet and then if that doesn't work I refresh the web page itself.  It will happen from time to time, not sure why.

This happend to me recently too. Try the undo button on top left. It looks like you disconnected one or more data sets.

One of my processes is to make a copy for significant changes.

Did you change any of the columns in your dataset? I've had this happen when I've changed the names of the columns or added/deleted columns. It usually goes away when I reconnect the dataset.
