Then it is possible that External Sharing is locked down even further. 

Please verify the following 


  1. In the left pane, under Admin centers, select SharePoint

  2. In the left pane of the new SharePoint admin center, under Policies, select Sharing.

  3. Verify what level of Sharing OneDrive and SharePoint has. 



Please send an image of your settings like the above one. 

Kind Regards

@oliwer_sundgren thank you for helping us out! I also removed a question type that was causing the issue. I added a file upload question and by default Microsoft only allows in org to upload. I removed that question and I can share anonymously. Again, thank you for your time and effort to get this solved :)

No problem at all@levanouski !
