No, I don't think it's a permission issue. In the permission issue, the ribbon will be shown but some options will be disabled with a warning message as shown below:

In your case, may be the ribbon is hidden. So try to check the Setting menu and click on the Show Ribbon option as shown below:

I know this is an old thread, but I was having trouble with this too and after scouring the web looking for an answer all morning, I accidentally stumbled on the answer myself.

I had to go to the Setting menu (the gear icon) and chose "Edit Page". It then then reloaded the page including the ribbon for me.

Maybe this will help someone in the future.
