Confluence CLI stopped working suddenly

Last month it worked fine, this month it is giving us errors and we didn't change anything. What could have caused it?

C:\CLI\confluence-cli\release>java -jar confluence-cli.jar --server http://******* --user ****** --password *** --space "***" --parent "***" --title "***" --action storePage --content "TEST"

Unable to log in to server: http://***/rpc/soap-axis/confluenceservice-v1 with user: *****.
Cause: ; nested exception is:
org.xml.sax.SAXException: Processing instructions are not allowed within SOAP messages

* = replaced content

Simplify by trying --action login with the same user info. Next try login with a different user. Log in the server job log for any related error messages.

I get the same error with a few different logins using the login action and there are no errors in the logs.

And the different user failed as well? And the same user can login via UI? Any changes in how users authenticate? Is this a user defined directly to Confluence? If not, try with such a user.

All users have failed both confluence internal and LDAP accounts. All users can login through the actual site. No changes were made to authentication. No changes were made period, which is why this is weird.

Restart Confluence is the next thing to try.
