  • this api was deprecated in.... April 2012. After 7 years Magento still didn't know it?

  • It not surprise me, so many bugs to fix, maybe they considerer this issue not high priority. If you want you could open an issue in github or find a fix and share with community.

We're experiencing the same issue. It looks like the Google Charts API that powers the chart has recently been turned off, though Magento seem to be aware: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues/21599

It may be worth navigating to Configuration > Advanced and setting 'Enable Charts' to 'No'. This will at least prevent the error from filling up the exception.log each time the chart attempts to load.
