Unhappy *URGENT* Visa 485

I am currently on a student visa subclass 500 which expires on August 30 - 2020. On immi websites under the eligibility section it says "you held a student visa within the past 6 months before your application and you now hold a substantive visa"

But under Step by Step section, it says "You must apply for this visa within 6 month of the official date of completion.

My completion date was in December 2019 "7 months ago" but my awarded masters was in April 2020.

My Q; if I apply today would that affect my application?

I am lost between these two conditions above!!

Please help!

You are not eligible for a 485 visa if your study completion date was more than 6 months before the application date. The conferral date is not relevant.
