How can you have individual AGI when you file a joint return?

You won't have an "individual AGI".  If you filed a joint return, your AGI will be the same as your spouse's AGI for that year.

What will be the AGI if we have filed an amendment? Will it be the amended return AGI?

No.  You use the AGI from the original 2018 return.

You need your 2018 AGI to efile 2019. The AGI is on 2018 1040 line 7. If you filed a Joint return you use the same AGI for each spouse.

When did you file 2018? If it was late in the year try putting in zero for the AGI. And see, https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/rejections/help/what-if-i-entered-the-correct-agi-and-i-m-still-ge...

If your spouse died during 2019 there is a problem efiling and you will have to mail your return

Be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them.  You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places.  Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.
