When trying to access a site you get the message

This means that the site is a Google Apps site in a domain where the Sites service has been switched off. You need to contact the domain admin to switch the Sites service back on

NB. Some users have reported that they are getting Error 403 even though the Sites service is shown as switched on in the dashboard and that after going to "Settings->AppName (e.g. "Sites"/"Docs", etc.) and doing "Uninstall" and then "Add"ing it back again makes everything work.
