If the issue is at the server end. Then, there is actually nothing much you can do at your end to solve the issue. 

Hence, in such cases, the most you can do would be to just wait it out, till the issue gets resolved at Nintendo’s server end itself.

To be sure however, you can either visit their official server status page, or go to third-party websites such as downdetector and isitdownrightnow and check if others from your region are facing the same issue. 

You can also follow their official social media pages and accounts to stay updated of any recent errors or check if other users have the same complaints as well.
