Cannot change folder icons

Reinstalled MacOS Big Sur 11.6 last week (had to do an initial install with MacOS mojave from internet restore then upgrade).

I now can't seem to change the folder icons. When pasting a new image to the folder icon I am left with this generic icon not the picture:

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem? I have tried searching forums and google but not much luck as the word "icon" just produces loads of results which are not relevant.
