Can not create a VM of any size in any region

I am brand new to Azure, but have created Linux VMs in AWS and Digital Ocean. I have never had any issues. I recently created a Free Azure account with $200 free credit and was trying to use it to learn about/practice DevOps. However, in attempting to create my first VM through the web-portal, I can not find any available standard small VM sizes. I have deselected any infrastructure redundancy or secure boot requirements. I have checked regions across the US and in other countries with no luck. I heard that this might be a temporary restriction on free accounts due to increased demand so I upgraded my account from free to basic(no base monthly cost) yesterday and still can not create a VM today. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong unique to Azure or if there is some kind of bug in my account. Please advise.

Hello @MichaelKloos-5483

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A community.

Did you open a Quota request as it is stated on the next article?

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/azure/general/region-access-request-process

Also, I am wondering if you have issued this command so, you can get further details about this quota limitation.

az vm list-skus --location xxxxxx --resource-type virtualMachines --zone --all --output table

You should specify the location on the command given above.

Best Regards,

The story is the same on centralus, westus2, and germanywestcentral.

Are you saying that all I need to do is submit a ticket for quota increase? I can do that. I'm just surprised that even the small VMs are not available by default without a support ticket submission.

I know this is kind of insane but yes... You can do that and then, get it working.
