Unable to activate wsp in Office 365

Today my Iffice 365 account is behaving strangely. Yesterday I was able to activate my wsp solution using activate button from the ribbon in solutions gallery.

Today I can not activate my wsp solution. It gives blank in popup dialog box. (As shown in below image)

When I click activate button, nothing happens.

Note: My user has full rights and it is site collection administrator.


There has been an outage listed in the admin portal for most of the week regarding sandboxed solutions:

Code in sandboxed solution has been depricated by Microsoft in SharePoint Online for some time now, see Deprication of custom code in sandboxed solutions.

So that might be a possible reason for what you are experiencing. That they are now enforcing the no-code-policy.

(Or it might be an ongoing temporary issue, see Eric Alexander's answer)

What you should do anyway is to convert your sandboxed solution to an add-in, most likely a provider-hosted add-in.
