chmod doesn't change mode

Hey Im using root to change the mode of a file and it
executes without a problem but nothing changes. chmod
just doesn't do anything. Anyone have an idea why? I also
cant change the owner with chown either.

It will tell me if there is a wrong file name tho.

Also verbose mode says the file was changed but it actually isn't changed.
