To determine the specific reason that caused this message to appear, review the report server log files, which are located at \Microsoft SQL Server\<SQL Server Instance>\Reporting Services\LogFiles.

To view the call stack, right-click the page on which the error occurs and point to View Source.

If there is no additional information to work with, you can try refreshing the report or reset IIS.
