e-filing an amended return from a paper return

I have a new client for 2020.  While reviewing their 2019 return, I noticed errors.  I need to file amended 2019 returns for them.  She used a tax program and e-filed the 2019.  It will not let me e-file the amended saying that i can only e-file if the original was e-filed successfully.  Where do I tell the program that it was e-filed successfully.  I can't find where to input that information.  Or is it even possible.  I hate to mail it - they are so behind with the processing of paper returns. 

Also, does it appears that Maryland is not accepting e-filing of amended returns.  Is this correct?

Thank you.

ProSeries will only allow you to e-file amended returns for which you filed the original return.  All others go by paper.

Unfortunately YOU had to be the one to successfully Efile the original (using ProSeries) to be able tor you to Efile the amended.

Not this year. I don't even know if it's  in their pipeline.

We're still waiting for them to have efiling of fiduciary returns.
