Check your network connections between your machine and the vCenter server.

if you connect back to vCenter Server does it connect?

you may want to use ping <ip address> of the vCenter server and see if it responds or requests time out.

1.is your vc center is on Vm ?
if yes, login to host and then check network configuration.

2.this issue comes from dedicated machine or every machine ?

it's a vm and it's a VCSA (vCENTER SERVER APPLIANCE) I always use IP.
I can still ping the vm while I see the screenshot. And come back after a while.

I was still able to access all other vms at the time

It's probably a bug in the vCenter Virtual Appliance, which is not reliable.
