    If I had to guess I would say that your FTP user does not have permissions to change that folder. I only usually get that problem when I create a superuser in linux and forget to adjust his permissions leaving him as the default 500 and not changing him to 0:0 in the /etc/passwd file. upload as the FTP user that has permissions and you should be able to overwrite.
