Approval email

I found that the "link to item dynamic content", when inserted in the Item Link field in the "Start an approval" action, returns a "500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR" when you click on the link in the modern approval email. Is anyone having the same issue? Is there a fix?

I am experiencing a 500 internal server error right now--when a user receives an "Send email with options" action-based email and clicks either of the choices(formerly the Send email approval action). It was working fine yesterday. No service health issues noted right now on MS. 

I have been having this issue ever since I set up the flow couple of days ago.

Is anyone else still having this issue? 


Every time I try to submit either an "Approve" or "Reject" action I receive a "The action could not be completed" error message.


Using Fiddler to examine the response, the following is received:


500 Internal Server Error


{"innerErrorCode":"ProviderException","innerErrorMessage":null,"authenticationUrl":null,"displayMessage":"The action could not be completed."}
