Unique Events just stopped working - Total Events does work

Since yesterday, all of my reports have stopped working if I try and track an Event Action, Category or Label by using "Unique Events" - It does work if I choose "Total Events." 

 

Does anyone have a 'Do'h' explanation for this?

I noticed that this morning; just as I was going to present a dashboard to some colleagues.

 

I'm getting a server error of some description; when I tried to reconnect the data source and refresh the fields that were displaying the error I get the message that Unique Events is no longer available.

 

I don't know if they've deliberately removed them or if it is an bug that will be resolved.

Thanks so much for the reply. In a sad way it is comforting to know someone else has the same problem. 

 

Would be great to know if I need to go and change all my reports. Hopefully Google will state if this is a change or a bug.

Hopefully it's just a temporary glitch and it'll be resolved quickly

 It looks like they might have depreciated the metric; as this is the current description assigned to it in the Fields list.

According to this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/40244164/unique-events-new-in-the-api we'll need to use "Unique Dimension Combinations" instead
