Broken OpenID endpoint on Blogger.com

OpenID endpoint on Blogger.com appears to be broken.
After user authentication https://www.blogger.com/openid-confirm.g always shows an error in the title of the page. The error is also shown when sending all required parameters to Blogger.com OpenID endpoint.

I've received notes from BlogUpp users that they are experiencing this issue, and confirm that I'm seeing it myself too. We haven't modified our code in that sense (it was working until lately) and hence it's something with the endpoint itself.

Thank you.

Concur, I've been getting the same error for several days. If you're logged out of your Google/Blogger account when you try to log into OpenID, it will first take you to the Blogger login screen, and then display the same error after logging in.

I try this verification at least once a day since first reported and I am still seeing an error.
 
Blogger, please look into this and fix it.

Dear LeeZa,
while this is being fixed by Blogger Engineers, please use alternate OpenID providers, such as Google+ / Yahoo / AOL, as per this OpenID delegation tutorial.

When using Google+ as your OpenID provider, please make sure to specify your numerical Google ID, not Google+ vanity name (the tutorial linked above describes how to get that).

One small addition to my previous suggestion: when adding a new OpenID provider, remove the other one. In this case remove (or disable temporarily) Blogger.com OpenID related line including https://www.blogger.com/openid-confirm.g, or disable OpenID in Blogger.com panel. Otherwise, the error will still persist.
