Never say never, but I'd say it's very unlikely.

"Error retrieving metadata" is obviously a message from the IdP, but the inner "cause" message is something thrown by Java.

It's more likely to be some kind of DNS resolution error in your environment, although it's hard to speculate what might be the cause of that.
