I have two Yahoo accounts, I can log in to secondary but my primary is saying this:

"uh oh! Looks like we can't get you in your account online. Please try signing in from the device you use most often or visit our help."

I NEED this account open. I have personal business I need to attend to using it.
It won't accept my password that I know is correct and recovering password goes to the screen that shows above statement.

I had the same problem a while ago. Eventually I managed to solve it like this:

Go to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/account

Top right there is an orange bar which says:
"Can't access your account? Sign-in Helper"

Click that and follow the steps explained on the screen to receive a "key" (via your alternative e-mail address or mobile phone) which you have to enter in one of the screens you get.

This got me logged in to my account again.
