Continuity 

When Finn is trying to board the escape pod he places his bag in front of the pod when Rose stuns him into the escape pod his bag is inside.
When Luke was being shot at by the AT-M6 walkers on the salty planet, the ground was scorched and had a blast radius sort of look. When Kylo Ren shows up the kill Luke the ground is back to normal.
In the first shot of the scene where Luke talks to R2D2 on the Millennium Falcon, R2D2's head turns towards Luke and in the next reverse shot it is still facing away and then turns around again.

When Rey wants to hear the real truth from Luke of what has happened to Kylo and him you can see the rain pouring down. But when Rey leaves Luke's planet one shot later, it is not raining anymore and Luke and his clothes have become dry in just a few seconds.

Factual errors 

In the opening sequence the bombers are going to throw bombs on enemy ship. Since they are in space this won't work. Bombs don't fall down in space. They would need some kind of fire device to fire them down.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At the beginning of the film during the bombing sequence, a character is seen inside her ship with the doors open to allow the bombs to be dropped out of the ship. She does not have any kind of oxygen mask or supply, despite this sequence being set in space. However, all through the Star Wars universe, there are openings into space that do not affect a ships atmosphere. We see this in a New Hope in the Death Star hangar bays and in The Force Awakens when Po and Finn steal the TIE Fighter. A thin magnetic shield is employed which allows solid matter, but not gas to pass through it.

Plot holes 

During the slo-mo chase scene, the imperial forces could have jumped out and back in front of the rebels at any time considering they did not have fuel issues.
During the slow-mo chase, the rebel lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles?
A major plot point is made of the fact that the First Order can track Resistance ships while they are in hyperspace, without the aid of a tracking beacon. This is treated as a new occurrence, but it completely ignores what was established in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In Rogue One, Tantive IV jumps into hyperspace, leaving Darth Vader behind. Vader then presumably returned to his star destroyer before resuming the chase. Since Vader ambushed Tantive IV over Tatooine in Star Wars: A New Hope, it is clear that he tracked the ship through hyperspace.

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

The second time they are meeting in the red room of Supreme Leader Snoke, you can see two black clothed, kind of technicians in the background. Altough we always saw the door and they did not leave, they suddenly disappeared.
On the Island when Rey falls into the dark hole, she is underwater, but right afterward as she is walking and duplicated, her hair is wet but her clothing is dry.

When Kylo Ren kills the last red guard, the right hand of the guard opens. In the next shot, his right hand is closed to a fist again.
When the trigger is falling, Paige is on her back. When she catches it, she is lying on her belly so she must have turned around within less than a second, which is impossible.
When Kylo Ren fights Luke Skywalker, his hold on the lightsaber switches from backhand to normal and backhand again between cuts.

Plot holes 

Finn and Rose crash right in front of the battering ram cannon, which is shown to be heavily guarded. The enemy forces are under a "no prisoners" order. How were the heroes able to traverse the great distance back the mine's entrance without being attacked?
