Until the 2019 Online version goes live sometime in December you will not be able to unlock a prior year return ....

How to upgrade to PLUS

How do I purchase TurboTax PLUS so I can get my .tax file?

In TurboTax Free Edition, you can purchase PLUS to unlock your prior-year .tax file.

The exact instructions will vary depending on the status of your 2019 TurboTax Online return (select one):

Note:  While you still can, print a copy of your current year tax return and save it as a pdf, too.  That way you will have it when you need it for school, a loan, etc. without going through a lot of aggravation to get it.

User justin_michael91 in the thread linked below said he was able to pay for PLUS this way:
  Right after signing in, clicking on HELP in the top right, then scrolling way down to CONTACT US.  Then following the prompts, entering a question, then choosing to phone Support.   It required him to pay for PLUS to get phone privilege, and that unlocked the past returns.

 

Whether that will work for everyone or not, I don't know.   Here is the thread where he described what he did:
