I am new to Ubuntu (currently only using it to delete a folder Windows won't let me delete). I am getting the error after typing sudo rm -rf {path} in the Terminal. How do I fix this? Sorry if this is a dumb question.

EDIT: I did not technically install Ubuntu, I made a bootable drive and selected "Try Ubuntu without installing".

    If you are using it from a live USB you need to remount the file system as R/W because for security reasons it is mounted as only R. Did you do it before trying the command above? – dadexix86 Apr 10 at 21:58
  • Make sure Windows's "fast startup" is disabled – wjandrea Apr 10 at 23:45
