OS Family 6 deployment error

I've got a notification in Azure Portal about support for OS 6 (Windows Server 2019) for cloud services. I've tried to upgrade my project and deploy to Azure but an error occurred saying that SDK supports only till OS Family 5.

My visual studio installation is updated to the latest available version. Am I missing something?

Please refer to Azure Guest OS document which states that:

The January Guest OS is currently being rolled out to Cloud Service VMs that are configured for automatic updates. When the rollout is complete, this version will be made available for manual updates through the Azure portal and configuration files.

This could be the reason you are not able to upgrade it. Let me know if you have any other question. Thanks.

I'm able to see the Windows Server 2019 option in my portal. Doesn't this mean it has been deployed for my region?

Please see the actual error message below.
