That message is pretty clear. Add access to the parent category first.

Yes i know but i want to add the child category to a group not the parent category. Which is working fine earlier.

To be clear, I was able to add child categories to a group earlier, but now it gives me an error.

A change was made a while back that enforced these rules. It doesn’t make sense to have read access to a subcategory if you can’t also see its parent. You’ll have to change the permissions as the message says.
