Are you able to create an Office 365 Group?

I know there is a limit of 250 groups that a user can create - but that limit does not apply to a global admin.

Have you tried this on both the desktop application and web application?

I would suggest logging a support ticket. Go into the Office 365 admin portal and click "Support" on the left navigation.
