  • $\begingroup$ is it really a curve? try converting it to a mesh and then back to a curve with Alt+C in object mode. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ the object you are pointing to is probably not a bezier curve. Can you show it edit mode to verify that ? $\endgroup$

It's named "curve" because it was originally a curve, but somehow it got converted to a mesh.

You need to use "Object -> Convert To... -> Curve from Mesh" to make it back into an actual Bezier curve again. Then you'll be able to use it in the modifier.
