Endpoint error with English

When I try to access to any endpoint with the en-gb or en-us param, I am getting an "Authentication Failed" error. I am sure that my credentials are correct. Only the English is not working. I can get correct responses when I try queries with other lang parameters.

curl -X GET --header 'Accept: text/plain' --header 'app_id:.....' --header 'app_key:.....' 'https://od-api.oxforddictionaries.com/api/v2/entries/en-gb/hello?fields=definitions&strictMatch=false'

Endpoints are not working with the only en-gb and en-us parameters. Other languages are working well.
