Hey all. I run a website for a small gaming community, and so far I've been using a Forwarding to get the godaddy registered domain www.potholestudios.com to forward to sites.google.com/view/potholestudios
Recently Google has allowed us to use our own domain on this, and I'm in the process of setting it up.
I am currently at Step 2 of the instructions listed here: https://support.google.com/sites/answer/9068867?hl=en

So, What do i need to do to correct this "unexpected error"?

Solved! Go to Solution.
Yeah, i had to Phone Support, showed them the issue, and they saw there was a problem and manually removed the faulty A WWW value.
Then it happened on a second domain i run..... yep, same again, had to phone support.
Then on my other two domains, i noticed the WWW record was a CNAME instead of an A.... and those seem unaffected by the issue....
So, it looks like the issue was the WWW record being an A instead of a CNAME.
Either way, it had to be manually removed by the support team, as it was refusing to delete when removing the redirect.
