Same site.  The following Flow just ran as designed and without error.  Full Path references Dynamic Properties for the create folder action.

Can you post a screen shot of your Flow in edit/design mode with all of the actions expanded?

Change the Destination folder in your move file action to use Full Path from Create Folder in Dynamic Properties:

So, power automate doesn't have the feature to move files within the same library? or I a missing something?

Thank you

@Goredy 

I found the move file action to be a little funky - I did create a Flow almost identical to yours and it ran without issue.  Try putting a \ before Full path and let me know if that resolves your issue.  Also, when testing, upload a new file rather than relying on re-running a previous run.
