Here's what I see in the logs:

2023-10-26 20:15:03,905 [26210602]   WARN - #c.i.o.v.i.l.LocalFileSystemBase - /Users/username/Downloads: Operation not permitted
java.nio.file.FileSystemException: /Users/username/Downloads: Operation not permitted

Could you please share the output of the ls -la ~/Downloads command?
