generally speaking you can can only uplift the versions get from home to pro or pro to enterprise - you could try changing the product key to the generic windows 11 product key

Windows 11 Home YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7

https://winaero.com/windows-11-generic-keys-for-all-editions/ provides information on changing the keys.

If this does not work then you may have to clean install windows 11 home
