I'm doing the below trail to create a scratch org using the procedures and getting the below error:
ERROR:  A fatal signup error occurred. Please try again. If you still see this error, contact Salesforce Support for assistance. sfdx-project.json.

Any help would be appriciated.

We are also experiencing this same issue as of this morning. SFDX is integral to our CI pipeline and it is completely failing. We made no changes, it's just failing universally during the sfdx force:org:create step. Any ideas or assistance would be very much appreciated!

I'm running into this error as well, but I'm new to SFDX. As far as I can tell I've been following the instructions as provided. I'm not sure how to proceed.

We are also experiencing this issue as of this morning, but only on the Windows Server machine using JWT tokens to authenticate.

I just tried the CI again, and the scratch org was created.  Looks like Salesforce fixed the problem.

Everything's working again for us. Agreed, looks like Salesforce fixed the problem!

Sry for the late reply
So, I had also faced the same issue.
I'm having one of the solution i.e please initilize you project again by using the commands like mentioned below
1)sfdx version
2)cci project init
3)cci service connect devhub --project
(If it ask username enter the CCiDevHub) and after that select Y.
4)cci flow run dev_org --org dev

If it works for you please like it.
Thanks &Regards
