Azure authentication failing, when using az cli auth type, with error getting authenticated object ID

This occurs after I upgrade my project from 1.27 version of azurerm provider to version 2.9.0. The full error message is below. All I have to do get this to work once again is pin the version of the provider to 1.27 and comment out the features {} block, which was introduced in the newer version of the provider; then simply run terraform init. After terraform init completes I’m then able to run a plan or apply as expected. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I can’t seem to find a solution using the Googles.
