watchOS 5 beta temporarily unavailable as Apple fixes issue for small percentage of users

The watchOS 5 beta seed, which went live on Apple's developer site following the WWDC 2018 keynote on January 4 has been temporarily halted. This is in order to fix an issue some developers might experience while updating. It's my understanding Apple wants to address the issues before resuming the seed.
