Sorry, that site already exists! subdomain only & site does not exist

Hi. I’m aware that the free version won’t copy over an existing site and that’s not what I’m trying to do. I’m seeing the “Sorry, that site already exists!” error when trying to clone to a new site, and only in multisite subdomain mode. In subdirectory mode I don’t get the error. I’ve confirmed the site doesn’t exist, including in the database. The error occurs no matter what URL I give the new site, even complete gibberish. I want to use subdomains and not subdirectories. Any directions on this to get it working?
