Why it can't be upon?

The difference is only that 'upon' is far more formal. You would rarely be incorrect using 'upon' instead of 'on'. The Oxford Dictionary says: Although the word upon has the same meaning as on, it is usually used in more formal contexts or in phrases such as once upon a time and row upon row of seats.
