I suppose, you are connecting to rrdcached through a UNIX socket (see
the -l command line option). In that case, the user doing rrdupdate
needs (filesystem) write permissions for the appropriate socket file.

If that is not the case, please provide more information about your
setup. What rrdcached command line options do you use? Does rrdcached
run as root? Which user is doing the rrdupdate? What is the command line
used for that (please note that some environment variables might
overwrite some of those options -- see the appropriate manpages for
details)? ...
