error message while trying to authenticate

Hi there, I would like some help because I no longer have access to my wordpress dashboard. This is a personal website (hosted by OVH) and when I try to log in I get the message “An error was encountered while trying to authenticate. Please try again”. I’ve seen on the forums that this happens sometimes and I’ve looked at the answers but nothing quite matches and what I’ve tried doesn’t work (I refreshed the page several times, cleaned the cookies, and tried adding www to the connection address, tried on Chrome and Edge…). I logged in yesterday without problem and I haven’t changed anything on my website, except that there was an automatic update of Wordfence Security (from version 7.10.4 to 7.10.5) and Jetpack (from version 12.7 to 12.7 .1) during the night. So I suspect a bug or a conflict at this level but from there I don’t know what to do. Thank you for your suggestions and help.
