Jetpack: Login Issue

Edit (14-Feb-2021): This has recently been resolved. The following is an extract of the solution I received in an email.

We got an update from the developer team.
Because of the initial mix-up of the accounts, it would be necessary to reset some metadata for the Secure Sign-On feature.
To reset the SSO security metadata, you will need to run the following database query:
delete from wp_usermeta where meta_key = 'wpcom_user_id' AND user_id = 1;
Before making any changes to the database, we strongly recommend creating a backup to be on the safe side.
Your host should be having a tutorial on how to do this as well, for example:
You can check out that as well.
After running this MySQL query, you should be able to log in via SSO using your account.
