I have the same issue but no help so far.
From what I understand it is due to the multiple accounts problem as mentioned before.
below is my example:
I can find two accounts in my billing section:
account 1 - account number 123 - it is an inactive old 'Sky' account.
account 2 - account number 456 - a new one - an active broadband account 'Broadband and Talk bill'
When I go to "My Profile" section it shows "BB and Talk account number 123" instead "BB and Talk account number 456".
I believe that there is a total mess up with the way the data is pulled (I am software developer by trade) and instead pulling the details of the new account it pulls the combination of the details of old and new accounts.
Therefore if I try to look for the new offeres, system checks the offers against an account 123 instead of account 456. Because account 123 is an inactive, therefore it comes up with an error.
It is clearly a messed up SQL querry that pulls the incorrect data in the first place and then feeds it further for next requests.
I am supprised it hasn't been addressed yet by Sky... and the developers eho created it should by kicked in back side for it...
I have seen this error now for years. I believe that this faulty SQL querry was developed a long time ago and it was fine for the time being. Once the system was developed further, the fatal flow finaly manifested due to the bad design.
I hope this issue will be addressed sooner than later.

Also, customer support team won't have a scooby about the problem and how to solve it. It have to be addressed by developers.

Otherwise,speak to Sky. The call centre advisers may not be able to address it themselves but they can raise a CRF so that it can be looked at by the development team.

Another way to possibly do this is to login to your old account and remove the email address from it as this will then free it up to be used with your newer account.

This error has been bugging me for what seems like years now. I've tried multiple devices/browsers etc so I can see the issue is not at my end and must be something to do with my account (diamond VIP, Sky HD boxes, Sky Broadband and Mobile) I get exactly the same error as @personatron detailed earlier in this thread. Has anyone who has contacted Sky about this issue managed to resolve i? You'd think if Sky know what the issue is they'd be able to knock up some SQL or a utility to find affected accounts and potentially fix whatever data issue causes this.

I have made so many calls and mailed sky regarding this problem and now it's stopping me getting the free paramountplus service. Here is the response and hopfully help you all with the reson why it's broken and they say this cannot be fixed. Basically if you were with sky and cancelled then return at any point, your original sky id will link to your new returning customer and stop you being able to do almost anything on the mysky webpage. They informaed me the backend team were working on this over 2 years ago and guess what...they are working on it still, so this is a big fat lie >
I’m sorry to hear that your previous experience with us was unsatisfactory, and I apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
Having accessed your Sky Account, On accessing your Sky Account, I see that your Sky ID has been linked to a cancelled account. The ID cannot be unlinked from the incorrect Core Account and creating a new Sky ID does not resolve this issue.
However, our backbend team is still working on it.
Hence, you will not be able to complete activation and use Paramount+ through Sky Cinema on your Sky Q box.
Therefor, I am sorry to inform you that we will not able to provide any compensation for that.
Whilst I realise that you may be disappointed with the decision made, I hope that you can appreciate our position on this matter.
I hope this information has helped with your enquiry. If you require any further assistance, you can reply to my email.

This is exactly what happens to me, I can't upgrade,look at offers, can't even activate paramount+, as soon as I sign in the error message comes up. I have spoke to sky several times and still unable to access it. Have u had any response since you posted this?

Yes on many occasions
It seems to be mostly when there are promotions on or anything free.

Still getting this error - have been for years. Shoddy to say the least. How much money are sky losing by not addressing this? I guess not enough yet.

Has anyone had an update on this please?
I don't know why they bother offering a free trial if you can't acces it!

I have been getting this in My Sky for over 2 weeks now but only when I want to manage my Sky Stream package. If I click on mobile or broadband it works ok.
