Cannot create table - cryptic error

Hello. I'm a novice user who has mostly used MS Access and VB to create databases. I'm made a jump to Linux and MySQL/PHP to develop some simple tools.

I'm trying to create a simple table using MySQLWorkbench with the following schema:
UID INT Should autonumber
Make VARCHAR(45)
Model VARCHAR(45)
Year VARCHAR(4)

When I "apply" the table to commit it to the DB, I get the "Apply SQL SCript to Database" prompt and it creates the following SQL:

CREATE TABLE `admin64`.`tblcars` (
`UID` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`Make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Year` VARCHAR(4) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`UID`),
UNIQUE INDEX `UID_UNIQUE` (`UID` ASC));

Then, when I press "Apply", I get an error that I don't understand...

"Error: There was an error while applying the SQL script to the database."

Message log:
"
Operation failed: There was an error while applying the SQL script to the database.
Executing:
CREATE TABLE `admin64`.`tblcars` (
`UID` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`Make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Year` VARCHAR(4) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`UID`),
UNIQUE INDEX `UID_UNIQUE` (`UID` ASC));

ERROR 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') VIRTUAL,
`Make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Year` VARCH' at line 2
SQL Statement:
CREATE TABLE `admin64`.`tblcars` (
`UID` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`Make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`Year` VARCHAR(4) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`UID`),
UNIQUE INDEX `UID_UNIQUE` (`UID` ASC))
