Solution:

When I investigate further on this issue, I realized that the web application is not running in IIS. As part windows server OS regular updates IT team rebooted the server but some of the web applications were not started.

Follow the below steps to fix this issue:

  1. Open the IIS (Internet Information Services)
  2. Identify your web application
  3. Right-click on the web application and start it

This resolved my issue and I was able to deploy the solution seamlessly.

Hope this helps, happy development in SharePoint !!!
