Same issue.  Cleared cache, deleted origin cache files, uninstalled and reinstalled origin client.  Nothing worked.

Are you online in Origin?  @Saturn-Sublime  

 

What you can try is clearing Origin cache. Let us know if that helps!

@EA_Atic I cannot even sign in to Origin as it says online login currently unavailable I can log in fine via the website though. So far I have reinstalled origin, cleared origin cache, checked permissions in firewall and antivirus, completely disabled firewall and antivirus, checked my clock was the correct time, reset network settings, checked proxy settings in internet options and deleted all origin games in case something connected to them was causing the problem. I close all origin processes after each new attempt to no avail. Thanks for the reply though, I appreciate it.

Got it to work from another thread.  I had to:

  1. Uninstall origin completely. Leave your games, just Origin.

  2. Google search Origin Download. Use the filehippo link, should be build 10.5.41.27263

  3. Download and install, go to settings and disable automatic game and Origin updates. Sign in and play

Note: I had to side step another download that they tried to push to me (brave browser) before I got to the Origin downloader.

I tried this and it worked. But after a restart of my computer and Origin was back to not being able to login and stuck in offline mode. EA support has not been very supportive.
