    Ok, then I'm out of options tbh

    Clearing data and cache and force closing the files app all didn't work did they?

    You know what I think.. The relevant apk file did not download or it was a corrupt download and therefore no read write delete permission got assigned it. Therefore it is so stubborn.

    I see root and factory reset as an option but it's simply not worth the Ocd.
