The space $M$ of finitely additive probability measures on $\omega_1,$ with the weak topology defined by the seminorms $\mu\mapsto|\mu(S)|$ for $S\subseteq\omega_1,$ does not admit a strictly convex lower semicontinuous function. This answers your question because of the easy direction of Theorem 1.1 of that paper - compose the embedding with the norm. If you're interested, $\omega_1$ can be replaced by $\omega$: pick a strictly increasing sequence $\langle A_\alpha:\alpha\in\omega_1\rangle$ in $\mathcal{P}(\omega)/fin,$ and replace the conditions "$\mu([\alpha,\beta))=1$" below by "$\mu(A_\beta\setminus A_\alpha)=1$ and $\mu(\{n\})=0$ for all $n$". This means the embedding condition fails iff your $\mathcal A$ is infinite.

Suppose for contradiction that there is a strictly convex lower semicontinuous function $f:M\to\mathbb R.$
For all $\alpha<\omega_1$ let $g(\alpha)$ be the infimum of $f(\mu)$ where $\mu$ is restricted to measures $\mu\in M$ with $\mu([\alpha,\beta))=1$ for some countable $\beta>\alpha.$
The infimum is actually attained, because if $f(\mu_n)<g(\alpha)+1/n$ for some $\mu_n$ with $\mu_n([\alpha,\beta_n))=1,$ then by lower semicontinuity $f$ attains a minimum $\leq g(\alpha)$ on the compact space of $\mu\in M$ with $\mu([\alpha,\cup_n\beta_n))=1.$
Since $g$ is non-decreasing, it is eventually constant: there is a real $c$ and a $\alpha_0<\omega_1$ such that $g(\alpha)=c$ for $\alpha\geq \alpha_0.$
There exists $\alpha_1>\alpha_0$ and a measure $\mu_1$ with $\mu_1([\alpha_0,\alpha_1))=1$ and $f(\mu_1)=g(\alpha_0)=c,$ and there exists $\alpha_2>\alpha_1$ and a measure $\mu_2$ with $\mu_2([\alpha_1,\alpha_2))=1$ and $f(\mu_2)=g(\alpha_1)=c.$ But by strict convexity $f(\tfrac12(\mu_1+\mu_2))<c,$ contradicting $f(\alpha_0)=c.$
