Region or SKU unavailable
This article describes how to resolve the issue of an Azure subscription not having access to a region or a VM SKU.
When deploying a virtual machine, you receive one of the following error messages:

Please try another size or deploy to a different location or zones. See https://aka.ms/azureskunotavailable for details.

When creating a support request to increase compute core quota, a region or a SKU family isn't available for selection.
We first recommend that you consider an alternative region or SKU that meets your business needs.
If you're unable to find a suitable region or SKU, create a Subscription management support request following these steps:
From the Azure portal menu, select Help + support. Then select New support request.
In Basics, for Issue type, select Subscription management.
Select a Subscription and enter a brief description in Summary.
For Problem type, choose Select problem type.
For Select problem type, choose an option, for instance, Unable to access my subscription or resource > My issue is not listed above. Select Save.
Select Next: Solutions to explore possible solutions. If necessary, select Next: Details to continue.
Enter any additional information you can provide, along with your contact information.
Select Review + create. After you verify your information, select Create to create the request.
