Hello Oliver,

thank you for your posting! 

Such issue should be investigated with the help of Acronis support team. But prior opening a support ticket, I'd ask you to verify the performed steps with the following documentation article

and also with Microsoft TechNet article:

If you only have Storage (general purpose v1), you need to upgrade your Azure account

Should the issue persist, please raise a support ticket and share the following information with the engineers:

- full error message and/or screenshots illustrating the issue

- step-by-step description of the deployment process done
