An illegal state has occurred.

When in the Behaviour Flow tab in Google Analytics I am not able to apply segments, I get the following pop up :

 

"An illegal state has occurred.

The request resulted in an inappropriate state. Reload the page to see whether the problem persists."
 
This segment worked fine previously, I am also not able to create any new segments in this view however if I go to another tab such as acquisition, I am able to create a new segment.
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks

I'm actually receiving this same error message with custom segments I've created.

I am also having this problem. Anytime I try to view or add a segment with Behavior Flow I get the message "an illegal state has occurred".

Just sign Audience > Overview for example and you will not get that message. This only applies if you have multiple analytics profiles, and when you switch between them, you are getting this message.
