@Simenew yes, @Steven Lord can and did. Like @Steven Lord said below, you have a file called image.m in your current folder or on your search path that you wrote and then in your code you do
image(imageName);
to try to display the image variable. MATLAB sees your image.m before it sees the built-in function (because you override it with your version). So then MATLAB tries to run that script (your image.m script) as a function since, in your code when you call it, you have parentheses after it and are trying to pass it an image variable. However your image.m is a script, not a function, and therefore cannot take any input arguments like you tried to give it. Bottom line use
>> which -all image
and locate the file that is your image.m and rename it or delete it.

You've likely created your own image.m file that's taking precedence over the image function included in MATLAB. To check this run the following command.
which -all image
built-in (/MATLAB/toolbox/matlab/specgraph/image)
If there is an image.m not under matlabroot you should rename that script file.
