The only thing I see that's different in the way I do it is that I still use the Layers toolbar - not the ribbon. Try typing Layerstate and doing everything from the dialog box. I know that sometimes things work a bit different from the ribbon.
This might not have anything to do with it. But there are 2 kinds of Layer States based on which space they were saved from. If a Layer state was saved from ModelSpace or from an active layout viewport (IOW clicked into MS through the viewport) it's a Modelspace layout. If the Layer State is saved while in a Layout view (PaperSpace) then it's al Layout Layer State.
Could it be that you accidentally saved a Layout as a Model or that you're trying to restore a Model in PaperSpace?
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
We also mostly use modelspace Layer States. The drawing I picked was a complicated one that grew instead of being planned. So I ended up with some layout as well as model. But sometimes I've seen ones that were supposed to be Model saved as Layout cause some confusion. I've done it myself. So I thought I'd mention it. Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees.
