I recently installed some new updates to microsoft office on my work computer and noticed the same problem with onenote giving me an error about not being able to connect to the internet. After extensive troubleshooting, deleting credentials, uninstalling onenote, etc. I was finally able to resolve the problem by uninstalling OneDrive for Business and Lync Skype for businessand then re-installed onedrive personal.
