Try going to the .sfdx folder under Users/[name]/.sfdx and delete everything in there. I had the same problem and this fixed it.

  • I tried this but it is not working... Can someone please help me? Oct 6, 2022 at 8:37
  • But I have 27 different orgs in there and the other 26 are fine. I've tried deleting all references to the failing org, but it still fails and everyone else still works. :-/

You can also just delete the file for your specific org, if you have multiple, instead of deleting everything. Thanks for the tip!


One of my students recently experienced this out of nowhere. We attempted the fixes listed here and I noticed that they could be elaborated a bit to help others since we got a little confused. Here are the steps we took to resolve it:

  1. Ran sfdx update stable-rc
  2. Closed VSCode
  3. Went to C:/Users/[name]/.sfdx and deleted all contents within (this could be a different drive depending on where you installed CLI)
  4. Restarted VSCode and attempted to connect to an org

This was successful in resolving the issue.
