    Hi @SGH ,

    For this error, as this post mentioned, you could try to follow these steps:

    1.Go to Central Administration and see if you access.

    2.Go to IIS Manager and check you application pools are all running. If not, start your application pools. To see if they are running click on Application Pool folder and you should see the list on the right-side under state should be "running" or "stopped".

    3.Go to your site and see if its working now.

    4.If not, go back to IIS and check to see what application pool is turned off again. Make sure SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool is running. If not follow this:

    SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool Application Pool -> Advanced Settings.

    5.Do an IIS Reset.

    6.Go to the site and see if its working, these steps can be repeated for any app pool that keeps going off.
