If you have tried this, while logged in as an ordinary user, you do not have the permission.
Permissions for an ordinary user is read and execute.

Therefore, you have to login as user root or better use sudo.

Generally it means as paulsep suggests, a filesystem based permission is saying that you don't have permission on one or more folders or files.

Do a ls -s (name of that file)

Example ls -l /opt/frontpage

Linux doesn't use a lot of /opt like other more unix like os's do. /opt tends to be added on applications. So I guess it could be that you have an application in use. Generally that is a different error.

type 'sudo' in front of it.
