I started adding groups to one of my libraries and it allowed me to add two, then wouldn't let me add anymore. Two groups added

I went to site settings, permissions, add group, and created the SharePoint group "Managers toolbox Visitors 3 because SharePoint REALLY sucks". Created group

I go in to add the group from all of the groups I've created: Attempting to add group

But, I'm getting this error everytime I attempt to add a group to my library permissions.Error

Why did it allow me to add two libraries, and create a bunch more but not add any more? Thank you.

I tried to recreate this in our test environment, and ran into a similar situation, except this time it won't allow me to add ANY of the three created groups. I ran the correlation ID through Management Shell then ULS Viewer and it gave me these results:

This was a simple compatibility issue. I went to Tools, Compatibility View Settings, and Selected Add to add the website. That resolved the error and allowed me to add a group.
