I was worried about a possible amsr2 breakdown which would be tragic but I noticed SSMI has not updated either so maybe it's a Jaxa issue.

Anyone know?

A guess only but:
CHANCE OF FLARES: NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of M-class flares and a 30% chance of X-flares on June 12th. The likely shource is sunspot AR2087, which has already produced three major eruptions since June 10th and is turning toward Earth.
INCOMING CME: The double X-flare of June 10th may have produced a geoeffective CME after all. At first it appeared that Earth was outside the line of fire, but a closer look at the CME reveals an Earth-directed component.

sounds like it might cause satellites to be put in a safe mode. But maybe the timing isn't quite right.
