Made a simple change to my "Display>General>HTML includes>Default Header" which I occasionally do and clicked on the "Update General Settings" button and got the following error message:

Control Panel Message

Failed to create a backup copy of the file. This file is found within your /includes directory and must be writable. Please fix the permissions and try again.

I checked the file permissions and it looks okay. See attached screenshot:

Any idea(s) what could be wrong?

Yes ,which ever works for the includes be it 777 or 775 or 755 apply that to all the other folders.,they should all show green in permissions check to make sure all features work on your forum

Iirc if you click the directory it'll show the files having issues in the permission checker.

Files need proper permissions to be written, folders need proper permissions to be written to and executed from.

Proper permissions are required to utilize the language or template editors, perform upgrades, write the cache, and write configuration changes; they're pretty critical.
