I began to have the same problem today when I tried to convert a word document to a pages document. I got a "permission denied" window.I tried your 2nd suggestion and ran the Disk Utility and had it Repair Disk Permissions. Then I restarted my imac and pages is now allowing me to save word documents as pages documents again. Thanks for the help!
