The PNG driver is trying to save its files in the current directory.
If you don't have write permission on that directory, it will fail.
Similarly, if the file already exists but you don't have write
permission on it, it will fail.
ISTR that later versions of gis.m tell the PNG driver to put the files
in a temporary directory.
Either cd to a directory for which you have write permission, or
update to a more recent version of gis.m. In any event, you should do
the latter sooner rather than later, as gis.m is under active
