You are using a database trigger and due to the fact that you have changed something to the underlying table structure the trigger status became INVALID.

The next time the trigger is fired you will notice that the implicit compilation of the trigger is failing:

  ORA-04045: errors during recompilation/revalidation of SCOTT.ERROR_LOG_TRIG
  ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

When the trigger is compiled explicitly then you are able to proceed.

  SQL> alter trigger scott.log_errors_trig compile;

  Trigger altered.
