The public_html directory needs to be writable.

drwxr-xr-x 15 502 502 4096 may 10 17:44 public_html

then run :
chmod ??? public_html

I had the same error IIRC I made the file sitemap.xml manually, made sure the user and group were the same as the other files in the directory, and mace it rw, r r (655)?.

Been working since doing this.

why is this permission not checked when other permissions are checked during install?

for some time im getting this error when installing
SitemapXML: Cannot write the sitemap file: ...snip.../httpdocs/sitemap.xml

i allways go and change permissions
and see no errors after that ...
but i rely on the checker to check ALL the permissions the script needs to run ...

That's a good point. From a technical point of view: The install script only checks the permissions required by Geeklog itself - and XMLSitemap is a plugin. So currently the installer doesn't know about requirements of the plugins. We would need an API for that.

Feel free to file a feature request.

we could check at least for the plugins that ship with geeklog install
will try ' file a feature request.'
