we run a SharePoint Online site, where we have a number of workflows (2010) running mainly to generate documents etc in our automated workflows. All has been working fine, till today, when we had some modifications we wanted to execute on some of the 2010 workflows. We are using Sharepoint designer 2013. When saving the workflow, there are no issues, but when we try to publish we get an error (see attached) [Unexpected error on server associating the workflow]
Right now, we´re at a standstill, and I can not find any real relevant information online on this. Some "older" stuff on temporary files etc have been reviewed, but without success.
Pretty desperate now to get some help - Everything is much appreciated.

@Nanovac_ABThis same issue has occurred again and I can no longer publish any SharePoint 2010 workflows (2 tried). Is anybody else seeing this again ?? Didn't Microsoft learn from the first time??
Edit: If you are going to check then do it on a non-critical worfklow! Don't break a critical workflow like I did. The symptoms are the same - existing published workflows are fine, but trying to publish a new one will fail and break the existing one.
