This step is not the source of the fallacy.

This is true. The only way the statement "everybody in the group has the same age" could be false is if there were two people in the group with different ages. That can't happen if there's only one person in the group
Why don't you go back to the list of steps in the proof and see if you can identify which one is wrong, now that you know it isn't this one?
