Site Backup Connection Failed Not Restoring From Backup

I updated some Wordpress plugins and ended up breaking part of my themes custom CSS. I want to restore to one of my backups via Site Backup on Godaddy but it's giving me the following error when I try to restore. 

I've never gotten this before. Any ideas on how to fix this? 
We are sorry, an error occurred during your restore.

Hi @cokedev. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! I'm not sure, but this looks like the FTP/Database connection between the backup service and your hosting plan has somehow been disconnected. I don't think there's anything you'd be able to change to fix this if it's still happening. If it is, I'd recommend connecting with our support team so they can have a look. Sorry Man Sad
