Change the color Mode to CMYK and flatten or merge layers.

Go to File > SaveAs and select PDF from the list.

Adjust PDF compatibility and quality settings as required.

That didn't do it either?  Me confused.  I even updated my program. 

Thank you for all your input!

Is the PSD flattened or does it still contain layers?

Save As PDF is limited to 30000px by 30000px. In any file above those dimensions, the Save As PDF will be disabled. You can scale down the DPI while maintaning the physical dimensions of the artwork e.g. 6 by 2 meters for example. The wrong image mode can also be a cause (Image menu --> Mode)
