Deploy to Firebase stopped working

We have a webapp that we have been deploying for some time successfully.
This week, with no changes to the configuration, the deployment has stopped working.

We have been using CircleCI to deploy to firebase.

This week, we started seeing this error:
“Error: Invalid project selection, please verify project prod-hinder exists and you have access”

Nothing has changed in the configuration on firebase or circleci.
Tried following the thread to determine the problem but no luck.

We reverted the code and the accompanying deployment scripts to the last time that the deployment worked and everything is still not working.
We re-ran the last successful build-deploy and it failed at the same place.

Any ideas?
