To begin with, one of the most common reasons for WhatsApp to throw this error is due to the poor internet connection or no connection at all. So, checking your mobile data settings is a good place to start at.

Additionally, a few mobile service providers seem to block a few chat applications. So, it's better to contact them and ask for a different access point settings to run these apps smoothly.

Furthermore, if you're facing any network dropping issues while connected to Wi-Fi, head to Settings, Wi-Fi, advanced settings and then make sure that "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" is set to on Always.

If all the above fail, restart your smartphone and see if it works now. Even on doing so, if your smartphone shows the error message then probably WhatsApp servers are down. There's nothing much you can do at this stage, just wait for a while and check once again.
