The ACL is interesting, actually. The user 500 (which is probably
the administrator account) has all permissions on the file while
YOU (user::---) have no explicit permissions set. That could result
in the cp error message as well.
I can't see the reason from here, of course, but it could be related
to the setting of the parent directories which seem to have weird
(windows typical) permission settings. You could try the following
in the parent directories:
chown -R dale.None .
chmod -R u+rwx .
and set umask to, say, 022 if it's not already set to a reasonable
value. Then try the cp again. If the directory permissions and umask
and /etc/passwd is ok, then creating files should work ok.
