Sheet protection is not supported so you need to remove it.

Sheet protecting is not enabled on the Spreadsheet. So not sure why this error occurs.

Difficult for me to say from here of course. I'd check that there aren't any workbooks or tabs you are missing in this sheet. I tend to trust these error messages.

Otherwise, re-create the sheet. Unless SharePoint likes this it won't play ball. There's no switch to flick in SharePoint that will get rid of this.
