You need to be more specific. How do you "go to rename" a file? From a bash
shell? Some graphical file manager, e.g. caja? Are these files actually
remote as your error message indicates, or local? Can you rename local files,
if they're remote? Do you have the correct privileges (write) to change the
name? Can you change the name as superuser? Etc.
