Getting error when trying to delete or add a new user

When trying to remove a user from the jira-users group we get an error message that it is in read only and cannot be edited. nothing has changed that we are aware of in both Jira and our Active Directory to cause this. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached screenshots of the error and our user directories structure
