Error trying to create Rocky 9 vm in Azure

I’m getting this error when I try to create a vm in Azure using the latest Rocky 9 x86_64 image in the australiaeast region, which is odd because I am literally filtering it by the australiaeast region and selecting the image from the list of available images. I have tried selecting Rocky 8 and different non-Rocky community and marketplace images and it passes validation, but fails with this error when I select Rocky 9.

In region australiaeast, the following list of Shared Image Gallery images referenced from the deployment template were not found: /CommunityGalleries/rocky-dc1c6aa6-905b-4d9c-9577-63ccc28c482a/Images/Rocky-9-x86_64/Versions/latest. Please check that at least one image has been replicated to australiaeast or that the ‘exclude from latest’ flag is set to false. Please refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/shared-image-galleries for instructions on creating and deleting such images. (Code: InvalidParameter, Target: imageReference)

Image: rocky-dc1c6aa6-905b-4d9c-9577-63ccc28c482a/Rocky-9-x86_64/latest
VM architecture: x64

Standard D2as v5 (2 vcpus, 8 GiB memory)

FYI. I managed to get Rocky 9.3 installed using the official marketplace image.
