Update: it turns out that instance profiles don't show up in the AWS console. Well, they do, but only attached to a role. If you delete the role, but not the policy, then there is no longer a way to see the policy in the console.

Therefore, instead of using the console, you can use the AWS CLI to see all the instance profiles:

aws iam list-instance-profiles

With that command, I found the old, conflicting profiles, so the terraform error message was correct. Instructions for Ubuntu:
Install aws-cli$ sudo apt install python-pip$ pip install awscliUpdate pip$ pip install --upgrade pipConfigure aws-cli$ aws configureDelete the instance profile$ aws iam delete-instance-profile --instance-profile-name <instance_profile_name>
