Now, this might be an odd one. However, it works for reasons beyond my understanding and surprisingly well. You can reset your PSN password by following these steps:

Follow the instructions provided in the email to reset your password. You may need to verify your identity by answering security questions or providing information about your account.
Once you have reset your password, sign in to your PSN account on your PS4 or other device and start using your updated password.

Changing The DNS Server
According to my testing, the error can be fixed by changing the DNS server, as it is responsible for your routing. You can change the DNS settings on your PS4 by following these steps:
Go to the home screen and select Settings > Network > Set Up Internet Connection.
Choose Wi-Fi or LAN cable, depending on your connection.
Select Automatic for IP Address Settings and DHCP Host Name.
Choose Manual for DNS settings.
Enter the preferred and alternate DNS servers you want to use. You can use a public DNS server such as Google’s (126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52) or Cloudflare’s (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11).
Save the changes and test your internet connection.
According to my team members, port forwarding is also a tried fix to resolve this error. It allows redirecting incoming traffic on specific ports to your PS4. To set up port forwarding for your PS4, you will need to follow these steps:
Connect your PS4 to the internet using a LAN cable or Wi-Fi.
Access the router’s web-based interface by entering its IP address in a web browser.
Find the port forwarding or virtual server section of the router’s settings.
Create a new port forwarding rule for your PS4. You will need to specify the following information:
Name: Choose a descriptive name for the rule, such as PS4 Port Forwarding.
Port range: Enter the ports you want to forward. The default port range for PS4 is TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480, and UDP: 3478, 3479.
IP address: Enter the IP address of your PS4.
Protocol: Choose the protocol type, either TCP or UDP.
Save the changes and restart your PS4.
The steps to set up port forwarding may vary depending on your router model, so consult the router’s user manual for more detailed instructions. If you still need help, contact your internet service provider for assistance.
If the PlayStation Network service is operational and you still encounter this error, you might have issues because of your home network. PlayStation’s official website recommends a minimum download speed of 5 Mbps. Therefore, I suggest you try connecting to a different connection with a download speed of 5 Mbps or higher if your speeds are less than this to eliminate this error.
