From Credit Karma:


If you’ve had credit in the past but no longer use credit cards, or you have closed accounts on your report, there won’t be recent activity to produce a score for you.


See https://www.creditkarma.com/credit-cards/i/if-you-dont-have-a-credit-score/


Your cable, utility, cell phone companies, as well as your county tax assessor, probably do not report your payments to any of the credit bureaus (unless you stop paying) so you need to have some sort of credit line (e.g., mortgage, credit card, auto loan) to establish a score.
