The update from 7.x-1.5 to 7.x-1.6 fails due to the following error message:

Error installing / updating
File Transfer failed, reason: Cannot remove file /var/www/html/sites/all/modules/imce/tpl/imce-page.tpl.php.

This is on a Centos 6 and Drupal 7.17.
Have tried setting directory to be owned by apache and set to 777. Have also tried turning Selinux off to no avial.

7.x-1.5 IMCE appears to be working correctly, it will just not update to 7.x-1.6

Please close out and disregard.

Found solution in forums:

Try 'chown -R apache sites/' or 'chown -R www-data sites/'. It fixed a lot of issues for me.
