Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That is what I said. You need to be sure of the location of the certificate and at which location you give the command. It says there is no file you are trying to delete. Either the location is incorrect or the filename. verify both.
When you create a certificate with OpenSSL it uses the /etc/ssl/openssl.conf file to get the preferences. Did you check that file as I posted for the location of where the CA certificate will be saved? Check the directory as linuxlover.chaitanya indicated:
ls -al /etc/ssl/CA
to see if the file exists.
One thing comes to mind. When you executed the command did you accept the default or did you provide a name for the certificate? The first question when you run
is to provide a filename or press enter to create.
If you typed a name for the certificate then of course cacert will not exist. Post the output of the command typed above to see what's in that directory.
As indicated before, the openssl.conf file holds your default configuration and it says it's saving in ./demoCA. This means that where you execute the command to create the certificate, that's where a directory demoCA will be created holding your certificate files.
Since you executed the command in your home directory you should have that demoCA directory there.
