Error "You're currently signed in with an Office 365 email account, which can't be used with Outlook.com".

I cannot sign into my Outlook.com account. I get error message "You're currently signed in with an Office 365 email account, which can't be used with Outlook.com. Please click here to sign out of your Office 365 account, then use another Microsoft account to sign in to Outlook.com (for example, your hotmail.com, live.com, or msn.com account)".
