This is not an error, it's normal behaviour when saving a PSD file as a JPG, PNG or GIF

It's a warning, not an error. You are trying to save a layered file as jpeg. Because the jpeg protocol does not support layers, that would destroy the layers ('flatten' the file). For that reason Adobe protects you against mistakes by making this saved file a copy, and keeping the layered original in memory so you can save that too.

If so, then the image quality is worse! What to do? Why was not it before?

if you want to save without merging the layers,  save it as a TIF,  it won't force you to save as a copy that way

I had the same problem when working with scanned negs, I think because it sets the embedded colour profile automatically (and you can charge it or select anything else) you need to merge the layers with your background and then it will save as a JPEG. Make sure you save the PS file before you do this in case you want to go back and edit the image again. Took me a while to figure out, I tried to go ahead with the error once and PS got stuck saving on 0% and wouldn't let me close anything. Hope this helps
