Can't create private repository on a free acount, getting a message that I need to upgrade

As private repositories are supposed to be part of the free account, I am a little mystified what kind of upgrade is required.

Thanks for your help.

Hey @markkap,

Thanks for reaching out! You should indeed be able to create a free private repo without any upgrades, the only cap is on how many collaborators you can add (up to three). If you are still having an issue, please send us a message on and we’ll take a look.
