Anyone else been getting this error when playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online?

Error Code: 2618-0551
An error has occurred. Please try again later. If the problem persists, please try performing a system update from System Settings > System on the HOME menu.

My Switch has the latest firmware, of course (5.1.0). I had a look on the Nintendo website and you can search for error codes.... but not that one :LOL:
