You have the noscript element in a context where it is not allowed.

You are supposed to post the URL for analysis.

Such questions are external to validation. The validator simply reports
whether your document complies with the DTD that you purport it to
comply with.

It is defined as an error because it violates the DTD. You can always
define a DTD of your own if this is an issue. You wouldn't comply with the
HTML specifications then, of course.
