Comment (by Otto42):

 To explain this more clearly to anybody else reading this ticket, many
 people don't quite grasp the idea here, and leave the literal text of "===
 Plugin Name ===" there in the readme.txt file. We see it happen all the
 time in committed code.

 So, the checker is checking for that specific text. You're supposed to
 replace the words "Plugin Name" with the actual name of your plugin. If
 you don't do that, then you get the error in question.

 You should actually not have "=== Plugin Name ===" there, but instead have
 three equal signs, the actual name of your plugin, and then three more
 equal signs.
