Azure: Licenses not assigned. License assignment failed for 1 user

Working on Azure portal today and trying to assign license to user. 

But keep receive error “License not assigned. License assignment failed for 1 user.”

Wondering what could be missing for Global Administrator roles. Thank you to CJ for help on resolved this.

Usage Location – Why it is important?

This property is the one used while assigning a license to a user in office 365. Some services in Office 365 are not available in certain countries and “Microsoft” determines this with the help of UsageLocation. 

This is a mandatory property that needs to be assigned while assigning the license.

After updated the Usage Location, no issue to assign license to the user now.
