ls: Service Data 1: Device not configured
"Device not configured" is a strange error for a simple ls
Usually a bad mount turns up as a basic directory... but that one seems to be in some state of limbo (somewhere between a mount and a folder).
When things get tricky, I normally like to see more info than the ordinary -la

Your prompt being $
tells me you weren't in a root shell... so chances are that sudo
was probably needed for rm
to work. But again, that "Device not configured" is not something i've ever had to deal with before.
It may have been useful to see these two commands as well:
