Please improve the Dataflow error messages

Please improve the error messaging when a Dataflow fails on setup. 


I spent over 3hr attempting to debug a Dataflow error with the only message being an "unexpected error" has occurred. After reviewing the network logs within Edge I noticed the far more helpful error, namely that I had a leading or trailing space in one of the entity headers. 


This was a 5min fix to 3hr due to a lack of actionable error messaging within the UI experience.

I would add that the error messages should also be improved, not only on setup, but also in error logs for existing dataflows that fail or have warnings upon refresh.

Dataflow error messages are the worst, as is the whole UI experience, I cant configure the same things I can in power BI dataflows which is silly.
