This may persist even if you add azure account again or restart powershell prompt or restart windows as well. In such a case, you can use below command to first remove all existing azure account:

This will remove all associated environments, subscriptions, and accounts. After this, you can add-azureaccount again to add your profile and be happy on your way. A quick google search indicates that if you are using two or more profile for Azure, sometimes corruption happens and same was case for me.
