What is the correct folder path you are trying to go to? What input did you give cd()?
It seems pretty clear that the path ''/MATLAB Drive/C:\Users\FUTURA TECH HUB\Downloads\Nouveau dossier'' won't exist.

In MATLAB Online, the root folder is /MATLAB Drive/. The file system of MATLAB Online is MATLAB Drive.
The only way to access a local file in your MATLAB Online session is to store it in your local MATLAB Drive folder and sync this to the cloud by installing MATLAB Drive Connector. See Access Files in Your MATLAB Drive
You can then use the command matlabdrive to build a dynamic path to your file that will work in both desktop and online sessions.
Otherwise, you will need to first upload the file to MATLAB Online by dragging and dropping the file into your current folder.
You may also find the Access Files in MATLAB Online page helpful.
