This part of the error message is telling you what is wrong:
THE SUBDIRECTORY MAY NOT EXIST OR THE PERMISSIONS MAY NOT BE SET APPROPRIATELY

You need to manually create a ufile sub-directory before creating the user code template.

The user & methodology manuals provide guidance regarding creating source terms.
