If you can't delete something because of "permission denied", you have
to be root,(or use a root file-manager), to fulfill the task.

Thanks for answering my question. Where is the root file-manager?

Which Desktop do you use?
in general look for [ Name of the File-manager + root or super user mode]
in the Application menu.
