FirePOWER configuration not available on new ASA 5506-X

We have a new Cisco ASA 5506-X.  We have it connected up as per the supplied diagram (Management 1/1 connected to GE1/3) and are able to access the ADSM and CLI as normal.  However, this device has "FirePOWER Services" but we are unable to see how to configure this.  According to the quick start guide (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/quick_start/5506X/5506x-quick-start.html), we run the Startup Wizard and should get to the "ASA FirePOWER Basic Configuration"; however, this does not appear.

Here is our "show version":

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.9(2)
Firepower Extensible Operating System Version 2.3(1.84)
Device Manager Version 7.9(2)

The ASA is on its default IP of   We have reset it to factory defaults and upgraded both ASA and ASDM to no effect.
How can we configure the FirePower services?
