Yeah, that was pretty annoying.

Well, you were complaining about realism hehe. They're just trying to make it realistic from that perspective.

Sounds like a bug. I could do it without problem. I didn't even need to break down the palace, the upgrade option jut appeared.

Then you missed the point of Rome: Total War. Its emphasis was on war, not economical management. They purposely dumbed down the economy. The on-field action, as far as combat is involved, is the most realistic up-to-date.
