Yes, I had that earlier today (when searching generally - nothing to do with my tree) , but logged out and closed the screen, then went back in and it's been fine since then.

Some sort of glitch.

I rang them up about it.
CS say that the problem is/was due to a combination of their servers being overloaded and most of the staff working from home.
They expect normal service to resume 25/26 March.
