Signal Messaging App not able to be accessed: "Play Services Error"

I’m having troubles running Signal messenger on /e. It comes up with a notification “Play Services Error” Google Play Services is updating or temporarily unavailable. Please try again.

This is on a OnePlus 6T, It’s running Android e-0.20-Q.

If anyone has any ideas, those would be appreciated.

I wasn’t running current the Signal version available through /e/-Apps but updated to see if I get an error. Neither in the old or current version (5.28.5) could I see comm errors. Either it was temporary, due to a setting or you running another version.
