Over the past few weeks, a handful of users have reported receiving the message "an error occurred" when attempting to load the "For You" tab in iTunes, which provides personalized recommendations for Apple Music. When clicking the "OK" button to reload, affected users are instead redirected to the "Browse" tab.
MacRumors has been able to reproduce this issue in iTunes version 18.104.22.168 on macOS Mojave version 10.14.3, although based on comments across the MacRumors forums and Apple Support Communities, the error message does not appear to be limited to specific versions of iTunes or macOS or any other parameters.
Many users are able to access the "For You" tab as usual, but others have been seeing this error message persist since early February. Affected users are still able to access "For You" on an iPhone, iPad, or other device with Apple Music.
While some affected users can temporarily access the "For You" tab in iTunes after signing out and back in to their Apple ID account, the error message eventually returns. On our affected machine, nothing we have done has restored access to the tab, including force quitting iTunes and restarting the Mac.
All in all, this is a minor issue, but hopefully one that is addressed soon. We reached out to Apple to see if it is aware of the issue, but we have yet to hear back. One affected user claimed that Apple has engineers working on a fix.

In terms of notifying me of new and interesting releases, For You is my main Apple source, so its loss is significant. Since I'm not a big fan of hip-hop, the Browse tab is effectively a useless mess to me.
