Yep, I since discovered the same thing. The account owner (not me) was able to create Developer ID certs, but there’s still a problem - because she requested the cert (using Keychain Access), when I download the cert, there’s no associated private key, so signing still fails, but now with a slightly different error message.
The same person who requests the key is the one that needs to download and install it. You need to be an admin on the dev site, or whomever is needs to request it, download and install it and then export the p12 file and send it to you.

There is a very good commercial book on this that has a chapter that explains this in depth.

We don’t know how to resolve this. I’ve asked Apple support, seems they may have broken something, or else we just don’t understand how it’s supposed to work (quite likely). Waiting on their response.
