Unlock the domain - already unlocked with status: clientUpdateProhibited

I'm trying to transfer a domain won at auction. Sedo says it's unlocked and that the status clientUpdateProhibited does not bar it from being transfered. I can't initiate the transfer. I can't pay for the transfer. I have the authorization code. Sedo says its a GoDaddy issue. 

 

Why isn't the domain able to pass the GoDaddy "Transfer Domain" input screen after search is clicked?

 

I can't list the domain name here due to potential security issues. I did confirm the whois status shows clientUpdateProhibited.

 

Please advise.

Followup...

 

GoDaddy was able to initiate the transfer from a "bulk transfer" screen (if that helps anyone). So there seems to be a problem with the new transfer-in form. I don't think it is domain specific.

 

Here are the EPP codes of a normal GoDaddy locked domain:

 

Domain Status clientRenewProhibited
Domain Status clientDeleteProhibited
Domain Status clientUpdateProhibited
Domain Status clientTransferProhibited

 

For the domain that failed to transfer in only one EPP code was present:

 

Domain Status clientUpdateProhibited

EPP codes for anyone interested in learning:

The EPP codes show on any whois lookup:

Thank you GoDaddy support!
