Cannot View Data Model of Report Downloaded from Power BI Service


I have Admin access to a workspace and I downloaded a report to Power BI Desktop (.pbix). However, I am unable to see the data model or access Power Query. Why is that?

FYI, this report is using a dataset of a different name. The dataset has multiple reports. The dataset uses a mixed model with some tables using Direct Query to an Azure Hive cluster.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
