Cannot Create Trial Environment

I'm in a development environment trying to create a sample model driven app. The sample data is not in the development environment so Microsoft prompts me to create a Trial.  See screenshots. When I click on "Start your 30 day trial" nothing happens. Nothing. 

 

I've noticed I can't create Trial environments using other methods either. It says I have 0 trial environments available. Yet, when I go into Power Admin under environments, only the development environment shows up. I only created the development environment because the trial was unavailable.

PowerApps Plan from Office365 has no permission to create the environment. 
Could you check if your PowerApp trial plan has expired?

What is the license of your account? Have you ever started a trial?

You need a PowerApps official or trial license plan to create a trial environment. If your trial expired, you would need to purchase PowerApps tp upgrade the license. Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/signup-for-powerapps-admin

In O365, I had the PowerApps Plan 2 Trial checked as well as the Power Apps Free and the Flow Free. 

 

It doesn't address the origin of the issue, but my company had an actual Plan 2 license and assigned it to me. I was able to create a Trial environment with sample data from there.

Thanks for the screenshot. Surprised an O365 license doesn't allow creating a trial.  Not sure what Microsoft is trying to achieve by not making 30 Day trials available to anyone with a corporate tenant. 

 

I don't see how you can tell whether a trial has expired.  The O365 licensing page doesn't say whether it's expired; just says it has been assigned.  Now that I have a P2 license, I could create a trial.  I'm good.  Thanks for your help.
