Looks like the scripting capabilities is turned off in your site.

Whenever you create a new site, the custom scripting capabilities are turned off by default. You need to enable the custom scripting capabilities to have the ability to managed navigation.

Option 1: Go to SharePoint admin center > settings. In the settings page, in the Custom Script section, set the values to allow as in below image:

enter image description here

Now, you need to wait 24 hours for the scripting capabilities to be enabled. After that is turned on, you will be able to save the settings.

Option 2 : Using SharePoint Online PowerShell

After opening the SPO PowerShell, run the below commands:

Connect-SPOService -Url "https://tenantname-admin.sharepoint.com"

Set-SPOSite "https://tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/test" -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0

Once you have executed these commands, it will be reflected immediately and you don't need to wait for 24 hours.

PS - You require SharePoint admin credentials for the above mentioned steps. Site Collection admin wont work.
