ASM cannot be enabled if 'Application Security Manager' is used in the license string instead of 'ASM'.
The ASM module cannot be enabled using the GUI under certain licenses where ASM is licensed.
'Application Security Manager' is used in the license string instead of 'ASM'.
Enable ASM using tmsh instead of the GUI.
The issue was caused by the license string used to check the licensing being 'Application Security Manager' instead of 'ASM'. iControl REST does not provide licensing info directly and the license string had to be parsed manually, unlike provisioning. The fix now checks for the spelled out version of the module as well.
