You do indeed have the Text group.  A group is a subdivision of the Ribbon.  If you look at your image, at the bottom of each group is the name, so you have 8 groups: Pages, Tables, Illustrations, Links, Comments, Header & Footer, Text, Symbols.  So the instruction were referring to the before last group Text in which there is a button Quick Parts.  Once you click on it you'll then have Field as an option.

Word -> Innsert -> Quick Parts -> Field ...
Can you post the document?

How did you create the page numbers?
Did you use Insert -> Page Number (in the Header & Footer group) -> Bottom of Page and then made your selection of the desired format?
Word -> Insert -> Page Number
Beyond the original link I provided, here's one specifically about page numbers, refer to https://support.office.com/en-us/article/insert-page-numbers-9f366518-0500-4b45-903d-987d3827c007?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
