That's an Android limitation, general-purpose apps without special permissions are no longer allowed full access to root-level directories or system folders such as 'Download'. You should not really be scanning directly from a transient Download folder into Poweramp's Library anyway, move your downloaded files to a more sensible media location.

If you are not using the Play Store version of Poweramp you may be able to bypass this by using Legacy File Access Mode, until Google block that too, but honestly you're better just using a more sensible media location.
