  • Check the settings of the group itself.  By default the only person who can add users to a group is the person who created the group.  I normally change the group settings so the group is owned by the Site collection root site owners group.  That way any of those users can modify the membership of the group.

  • Hi,

    I would suggest you to verify group owner and if required change group owner to your account and then add users.

    Thanks.
