Cannot chown files as root

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Arch x86_64, 3.9.x I'm unable to update python because there are files in /usr/lib/python3.3/test/* I am unable to delete the files and I'm unable to chown them. Code: [root@corp test]# chown: changing ownership of '__pycache__/test_lib2to3.cpython chown: changing ownership of '__pycache__/test_lib2to3.cpython-33.pyo': Operation not permitted I had the lovely idea of mirroring two flash drive for this server (router). Not the best experience... I've had them crash and I've had to do 15 minutes of fsck to fix. Forgetting to move the log files played a part in that. Anyways, how the he (HowTos)
