Question: It says that I can't change my Apple ID to my notification email

I was trying to change my Apple ID to my main email, which was set to a notification email at the time. When trying to change it, a message appeared stating that I couldn't set my notification email as my Apple ID. So, I removed it as my notification email and tried again, but the same message popped up. I am doing this on my Apple ID account page.

iPhone 6, iOS 11

If your e-mail address was associated with the ID in any way, for example as a Reachable at or Rescue e-mail address, then it can't be reused with another Apple ID for approximately one year. You will need to get another e-mail address to use as your Apple ID.
