Work with your IT team to verify that the correct Edition is selected in the SharePoint Lists connector dialog box: it should be On Premise if the above error occurs when the Authentication method is Username and Password.
If the Authentication method is Third-party SSO, verify that a supported third-party SSO product is used.
The incorrect Edition is selected in the SharePoint Lists connector dialog box, or an unsupported third-party SSO product is used.
