Resolution:

Activate publishing at the site collection level

 
1.       From the root of your site collection, click Settings Small Settings gear that took the place of Site Settings. > Site settings.
2.       On the Site Settings page under Site Collection Administration, click Site collection features.
3.       On the Site Features page, scroll down to SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure and click Activate.
 
Once publishing features are activated, sub sites inherit them automatically. But, if you built a site before activating the publishing infrastructure, you’ll have to manually activate it for each site.
