You need to share much more information.

- OS and version

- LrC version

- Are you importing from a card or directly from camera

- Using copy, where is the target of the photo

- Source and format of the photos

 

... out of the blue ... the user you are working with does not have write/access privileges at the target location.

Most likely, you have selected a Destination Folder where you do not have write permission in your operating system.

 

Either change to a different folder, or change the permissions on the Destination Folder so it has write permission.
