Character error 

On Kef Bir, the Millennium Falcon is landed by sideways ramming it into a hill, leaving a trail of destruction, due to the landing gear being defective. The Falcon however always had vertical take-off and landing capabilities, so this harsh landing is unnecessary.

Leia is laid under a white sheet whilst people mourn her passing, clearly fully clothed, but when her body is taken by the force the sheet collapses flat.

Miscellaneous 

Throughout the final battle, the armada of Star Destroyers float above Exegol without any obvious downward thrust. Resistance ships are able to fly beneath them, uninterrupted by any force that is keeping them in the air, despite the planet obviously having a gravitational pull similar to that of Earth, judging by the manner in which Rey and Palpatine walk on its surface.

In the final sequence after the battle, when everyone returns to the rebel base to celebrate, Poe and Finn come together and celebrate. After celebrating, Rey appears and the three do a group hug. In this group hug, the order is wrong. Poe should have his head on one shoulder of Rey and Finn on another shoulder instead of Finn being the central figure in the hug.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Finn claims the second Battle of Endor was where the "last war ended". In actuality, in the canon expanded universe, the war went on for another year, culminating with the Battle of Jakku and the subsequent Imperial surrender. As Disney spearheaded their own expanded universe and undid all that had come before, it's odd they'd make this mistake. However, the Battle of Endor was effectively where the Empire was defeated by the Rebel Alliance, and the Emperor and Vader were both killed, thus closing the original trilogy. Further minor skirmishes with the remnants of the Empire in expanded universe spin-off materials don't count.

With the crawling scroller that opens the movie, the final sentence ends with four periods. An ellipsis only has three periods. However, this happens on purpose in every Star Wars movie.

Plot holes 

Luke's X-wing is very clearly badly damaged in The Last Jedi, as one of the wing panels is missing, because it's used as the door to Luke's hut. Yet somehow it's perfectly functional in this movie, after being left fully immersed in the sea and unmaintained for ten years.

At the climax of the film, Ben Solo is shown to have followed Rey in a TIE fighter from the ruined Death Star circa Return of the Jedi. The TIE fighters from the Original Trilogy lacked the ability to use hyper drive and as such there is no way Ben could've reached Rey in time.

Characters in the movie don't question the return of Palpatine much, but they seem strangely even more unfazed with the revelation that he had a son, even though it had never been mentioned or hinted at in any way previously.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When Temmin "Snap" Wexley boards his ship before the final assault, he is in an A-Wing fighter. When Poe Dameron calls out to Snap as he crashes, an X-Wing fighter is shown exploding.

Plot holes 

There is no mention of the navigational tower on Exagol having any type of shielding, and when they attempt to destroy it at ground level no shielding is shown or implied, so the Resistance should have been able to destroy it from the air instead of the unnecessarily risky choice of flying through enemy fire down to ground level to destroy it.

When the star destroyers on Exagol begin firing at the Resistance ships, Poe says that their fighters need to fly down to the same level as the star destroyers so that they would be prevented from firing on the Resistance ships for fear of getting caught in the crossfire. However, moments before, an establishing shot of the star destroyers show that they're in three or more tiers vertically, making the Resistance tactic moot.

Mace Windu, Adi Gallia, Luminara Unduli and Aayla Secura all die before the end of Episode III without ever hearing about the power to become one with the Force. Thus hearing their voices in the Force doesn't make sense, as this power was discovered during the prequels by Qui-Gon, which then taught Yoda at the end of Episode III. It's not clear for Ahsoka Tano and Kanan Jarrus, as they both survived the Jedi purge and arguably could have learned this power at some point after Episode III. It makes total sense, however, to hear the voices of Luke, Yoda, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, as the previous movies showed they died in a state of balance in the Force, which enabled them to become one with the Force and periodically reappear as Force spirits.
