existing compute instances stopped all of a sudden and cannot create new free tier compute instance

Unable to start instance: Instance ocid1.instance.oc1.xxxx is disabled and will not accept any action requests. Please contact customer support to reenable.

while contacting support, support is saying you are on free tier and we cannot access your account. tried terminating one of the instances to create a new one, but getting following message:


Howdy, Stranger!
