Upwork uses something called "MassPay" to send your earnings to your PayPal account.
This is different to "standard" PayPal transactions and not always automatically available to all PayPal accounts in all countries.
You need to contact PayPal and ask them if your PayPal account can receive MassPay transactions and if not, if your PayPal account can be enabled to receive them.
Hope that helps.
