How to Solve Android Error: gps requires ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

Every time the application is run, a SecurityException is thrown, and the debugger error is as follows:

java.lang.SecurityException: "gps" location provider requires ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION or ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission.

My MapActivity code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES" />
<uses-permission android:name="com.dev.cromer.jason.coverme.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE" />

        </intent-filter>
    </activity>

    @Override

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_map);

        setUpMapIfNeeded();
    }

    @Override

    private void setUpMapIfNeeded() {

            if (mMap != null) {
                //mMap.setMyLocationEnabled(true);

                setUpMap();

        }
    }


    private void setUpMap() {
        mMap.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(new LatLng(0, 0)).title("Marker"));
        mMap.setMyLocationEnabled(true);

        LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);

        try {
            Location myLocation = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);

            if (myLocation != null) {
                Log.d("TAG", "Not null");
            }
            else {
                Log.d("TAG", "NULL");
                locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER, 0, 0, this);
            }
        }
        catch (SecurityException se) {
            Log.d("TAG", "SE CAUGHT");
            se.printStackTrace();
        }
    }


    @Override
    public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
        Log.d("CHANGED", "LOCATION UPDATED");

    }

    @Override
    public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {

    } 
}

How to Solve:

ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION , ACCESS_FINE_LOCATIONAnd WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGEare Android6.0 runtime permissions system.

For example, this activity has five permissions. Four are runtime permissions, although it currently only handles three (I wrote about it before). WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGEHas been added to the runtime permissions roster).
