Can no longer "Upgrade" a G+ Page to Gmail

Hi,
  When attempting to upgrade a G+ Page to a Gmail account, this shows up instead: https://accounts.google.com/info/servicenotallowed?service=mail with the message "

Whoops! You're using an account that can't go here".

  Is this a bug or was the feature killed without informing Page owners before hand?

Browser:
1. Chrome: Version 54.0.2824.0 dev-m
2. Firefox: 50.0a2

I also would like to clarify that I am trying to upgrade a Google+ Page account to a full Gmail account. I do not have access to Gmail Labs until the upgrade process is done ;)

The last time I saw this feature was July 28, 2016. To help explain it better:
a. Create a Google+ Page
b. Go to the settings of the Page (make sure you are accessing it as the Page Owner and not as a Page) and look for "Third-party tools" below it is "Setup a password" button
c. It will ask you to create a password for something-something@pagesgoogle.com
d. Before August 2016, there is an option to "Upgrade to a Full Gmail account"
e. This August 2016, this option is no longer available

Thank you
