I can't login in to my upwork time tracker.

After entering email and password and short loading I get a message: "An unknown error has occurred".

My client is waiting for me to start on his project, and I am stuck on this step.


Mac OS - 10.15.3

I did fix the issue my self and just now have time to address it here.

The way I was able to fix it:

On my macbook I deleted the app from applications folder and then searched (via mac os search bar) and deleted any mentions of upwork on the computer. After reinstalling the application I was able to log in and start loggin hours.

I had a same problem on Ubuntu 18.04.
In addition to unstalling the previous version and installing new one, I needed to delete application cache:
Click on system tray Upwork icon, then Settings, then Advanced, then "Clear Cache And Restart".

Yes, this worked for me. Clearing the cache was all that was needed.
