I get this error now for the last 5 days. I have moved the resource successfully between subscriptions before.

{"code":"ResourceMoveProviderValidationFailed","message":"Resource move validation failed. Please see details. Diagnostic information: .","details":[{"code":"OperationNotAllowed","target":"Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines","message":"The resource provider cannot perform this operation currently due to system upgrade. Please retry after some time."}]}

    Ideally, this error would appear when you perform move or migrate to the Azure IaaS VMs at the time of platform maintenance.

    If this is the reason then you should see issues moving to new subscriptions for resources related to VM's. Requesting to try the move operation after couple of hours.

    I am adding few help documents related to the resource movement between resource groups and subscriptions which will helps for you future. Please ignore if you are already aware of it.

    Reference & Help document:

    Move resources to a new resource group or subscription:

    Move operation support for resources

    Use Azure Resource Move to migrate an EA or PAYG subscription to Azure CSP
