Check whether the appropriate setting is configured on the MDM Administration Console:
1. Ask the MDM administrator to display the "Allow New Admin Install" setting in the "Android Restrictions" rule.
2. Verify the setting is disabled.

(Note: With some MDM consoles, this policy is automatically configured when the user enrolls with the MDM.)
