Why is paypal holding my funds

Hello, I received the below email, asking for an additional $350 to upgrade my account. Is this normal?

Its a scam, you don't pay anything to upgrade an account.

Something similar happened to me in 2018. Took me a good couple heart attacks to realize that I wasn’t able to withdraw to a bank, but was able to transfer to a different PayPal account. Liquidated the funds to a friend, created a new account and starting as if nothing happened. Good luck!
