I'm trying to run the Search-AdminAuditLog cmdlet via the ExchangeOnline PS module from my admin workstation but I keep getting the follwing error:

Same issue if I try via the EAC

It's been like this for 24 hours, I was able to run the cmdlet before yesterday.
Is there a global issue with this service or is something amiss in my environment?

Regards

    Seems to work fine here, though it doesn't mean anything given the scale of M365. Have you tried the async search experience, via New-AdminAuditLogSearch? Does it also throw an error?
    In any case, if you are still having issues best open a support case and report this.
