It possible that Apple ID never was used to purchase/download the macOS to begin with. Depending on your current macOS you may be able to revert to the original macOS of the computer.

See How to reinstall macOS - Apple Support and look for the keyboard command that installs the macOS that came with your Mac. If we had more information about what computer it is (like Year or Model) and macOS give you more information.
