No solution yet, but there is a work around.   Go to your network settings, hit advanced settings go to DNS and make your primary and secondary DNS 8.8.8.8

This hasn't fixed it for me. I had the original 3 errors which was thankfully fixed with the patch and have been playing fine for the last couple of days, including this morning, I came on after work and can get into my original server (PVE EU 39) but not my current one (PVE NA 69).

When I try the workaround I get the "Joining session..." stuck on screen and without the workaround I get the error "Could not retrieve address"

i have tried hard resetting the Xbox, my route, restarting the game entirely, going on and offline repeatedly and alternate MAC address. None of which work.i have also unbookmarked and gone from the full server listing. It appears from the number of people in the server that this is one of the few having this issue as usually by now this server is full and yet today only has 15 showing. 

 

Sorry for for the long post, just wanted to give as much detail as possible.

Nope as per my previous post, directly above the one you quoted, it caused my game to freeze in the "Joining session..."

If none of the workarounds in Jats thread here nor the DNS 8.8.8.8 please submit a ticket at the top of this site; https://support.survivetheark.com/hc/en-us
