I think you don't have the group created in your Azure Cloud. Or the group may be in different regions. If you want to create a group, you can use the below command.

$ az group create -l westus -n MyResourceGroup
  "id": "/subscriptions/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/resourceGroups/MyResourceGroup",
  "location": "westus",
  "managedBy": null,
  "name": "MyResourceGroup",
  "properties": {
    "provisioningState": "Succeeded"
  "tags": null,
  "type": "Microsoft.Resources/resourceGroups"

Hope it helps!
