Moving an existing G+ page to a verified Local listing

Google Small Business Advisor

G'day!
I have an existing Google+ Brand page with a good number of followers, and a new business listing on Maps - both are Plus Your Business.

As such, I would like to connect the G+ page to that listing. 
The way it was suggested in the past was: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6010825
But I cannot seem to get that process to work ('settings' gear is missing etc)
Could you let me know how best to proceed?

Thanks, M

Hi Martin,
It seems you are accessing it from the wrong entry point.
I followed the instructions in that help article and I can proceed to connect my local listing to a different Google+ page.

Did you start at your My Business dashboard?

Thanks for hopping on in :)
I seem to fall down here:
"Click on the three dash menu menu in the top left-hand corner of your screen." from https://support.google.com/business/answer/6010825
As when I do so I get:

i.e. cannot see a settings gear/cog

Hi Martin,
You are in List view, please switch to Card view and make sure you are in the LOCATIONS tab.
Click the MANAGE LOCATION button for the Local listing you wish to connect to the Brand page.
Now you should see the Settings option in the menu.

Hi Treebles, 

I have the same issue: newly verified GMB and an old G+ active page. 

It didn't work for me.  I don't get to a place where the existing since 2015 G+ page can be added. It pushed me to enable a new G+ page instead. I send "report an abuse" while logged in as the owner and hope to hear a solution.
