It's not a new issue in the SharePoint Online, sometimes happened and automatically solved after a few minutes of waiting!

So I suggest doing the following:

  1. Create a simple Add-In and try to publish it to make sure that the issue is not related to your Add-In, if you face the same issue, so it's not related to your main Add-In.

  2. Also, try to publish your Add-In to another tenant, if you have!

If the problem is not solved until now, so you should raise a Microsoft ticket to get it solved!

  • hello mohamad I am getting this issue in a new app also and its been 6 hours and am still getting this error Nov 2, 2018 at 9:11
  • Hello, @RajeevKumar , That means the issue is not related to your main Add-In, you should open SR with Microsoft to solve it. Nov 2, 2018 at 9:22
