Can’t follow anyone but verified accounts

I have worked with instagram for years and never had this happen. I can follow a single account unless it has the blue check mark next to it. I got no notification that I am blocked from following anyone or even a warning that I need to stop for now. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any clue when I will have the option to follow again?

The account has over 2000 followers and is following around 7000. It has also been around a week since this first happened. I went from getting 150…
