That's just nonsense, unfortunately

Upgrade with avios for TA bookings has been possible with BA for many years now.

GUFs have been possible to do with BA for a TA booking since 2018.

I think upgrades with cash using POUGs aren't possible - you would be unlikely to get one offered on a TA booking. Upgrades by simply doing it as a change would be possible but I think that needs to be done with the TA.

Please PM me the PNR and i will take a look for you, to confirm what ticket type it is.

It is indeed not the case that all TA bookings can't be upgraded via BA, as mentioned above, so apologies that wrong info was given to you.
