  • Does it happen only with specific file or others as well. It seems you don't have contribute permissions on the site you can just read items but not modify/upload. Aug 16, 2018 at 10:13

Make sure that

  • You have EDIT permission in the SharePoint Doc Library to can upload files. or at least you have the below custom level permissions

    • Open Items,
    • Add Items,
    • View Items and
    • View Application Pages

    Note: READ or Vistors is not sufficient to upload a file.

  • If you made sure that your current user has the sufficient permission, so make sure that The login account is not your personal Microsoft account like outlook or live account.
