The problem is exactly what it says it is.  You have a user directory which you do not have access to write to.  JIRA admin grants you JIRA admin, it doesn't grant you rights to edit the content of external directories unless you explicitly set it to.

Go to admin -> user directories, I suspect you'll find at least one is read-only.  Even if it's not that, then the account used to connect JIRA to it does not have permissions in the directory.

I'm having the same problem, but the other directories are read-only with local groups.

So why would Jira even NEED to remove the group from those directories, and why would it fail?

Now I cannot remove the group at all, very strange.
