When you try to check out and edit a PowerPoint 2016 file in the Office 2016 desktop client and the file is stored on a SharePoint document library, PowerPoint says it's a read-only file.
We are actively working on fixing this issue. In the meantime, you can work around it by checking the file out of SharePoint before trying to open it in PowerPoint.
