In my case I had to setup a new local user on my machine and to remove the old one.
Then the folder ( defined by brew --prefix ) looses its owner.
With this the owner is set to the new local user and - it works!

In my case, had this problem as I created a new user for development and installed brew in my original Mac OS Monterey user account. The mentioned solution solved my problem. Thanks !
