Elasticsearch security not available

According to the following page, X-pack security plugin is available since the version 6.3.
I am using Elasticsearch 6.5.4, however when I run bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive, I get the following.
Please check if you have installed a license that allows access to X-Pack Security feature.

While the code for X-Pack is available in a public repository, we do not claim that it is "Open Source". See Subscriptions about the different features available.

The default distribution of Elasticsearch includes all of X-Pack, but the default license is "basic".

You can activate a free trial of the commercial features via Kibana (Management -> License) or via the API.

Security still requires a Trial or gold/plat license.
