An error occurred (OperationNotPermitted) when calling the CreateDefaultVpc operation: Accounts on the EC2-Classic platform cannot create a default VPC.

Okay so from a document from AWS, what i figured out is that if your account is created before 2013-12-04 then some of the regions get EC2 Classic and over there you cannot create a Default VPC. 

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/vpc-migrate.html

My suggestion for you would be try changing your region. That works!

Hope it helps
