Office 365: Unable to Login to SFB after Enabling MFA

After more than a week of pushing MFA my skype for business stopped working.

I got a strange error

The user name, password, or domain appears to be incorrect. Ensure that you entered them correctly. If the problem continues, please contact your support team.

Further investigated in Azure AD. Failure reason “User did not pass the MFA challenge (non interactive)”
