GitHub integration - "You cannot change "options.enabledDatabaseCustomization"" error when not changing that setting


I recently enabled github integration so my configuration is version controlled in github. But now in deployments to one of my tenants I consistently see the error message:

APIError: {“statusCode”:400,“error”:“Bad Request”,“message”:“This database contains XXXX users. You cannot change “options.enabledDatabaseCustomization” setting.”,“errorCode”:“operation_not_supported”}

This seems clear enough, so I first I tried looking at the database.json file and changing the value from false to true, but I still get the same error message. It seems like “false” (what I had originally) is the correct value, so I change it back and check it in - again the same error message. Finally, I use ‘a0deploy export’ to get the current configuration and check in exactly that file, but I still get the same error. What’s going on?
