It appears you can't use the default (master) view display anymore for TVI #1935426: Can't select views master display
Attached patch removes that bit from the documentation.
Same. On the Community documentation page, under How do I use it?/ bullet #2 it is written:
If you do the latter [clone the Taxonomy term view], it's recommended you remove the "Page" display so as not to conflict with the core path, and use the "Defaults" display in the last step.
Removing the page displays removes the view from the select list at admin/structure/taxonomy/[vocabulary name]/edit.
@drclaw's patch suggests replacing the page display with a block display (see edit). I'm not sure what the advantage of that is...? I've kept the page display but have modified the path to something other than /taxonomy/term/% (which is the path used by core).
All seems to work ok.
EDIT: I tried using a block but it didn't work
