As your cluster is Ranger enabled now so you will need to check if you have created proper Ranger HDFS policies or not?

So that a user with principal "hdfs-hdp" (or if this user is part of the correct group which has write access to that dir) will be able to access the "/user/spark" directory for writing purpose.
