Plesk upgrade process failed with error:

    changing ownership of '/usr/sbin/suexec': Operation not permitted


File /usr/sbin/suexec has immutable attribute. Therefore even root user cannot change the file.

    # lsattr /usr/sbin/suexec
    ----i-------- /usr/sbin/suexec


Remove immutable attribute as below:

    # chattr -i /usr/sbin/suexec

    # lsattr /usr/sbin/suexec
    ------------- /usr/sbin/suexec

    # chown root:apache /usr/sbin/suexec
    # ll /usr/sbin/suexec
    -r-s--x--- 1 root apache 14264 Aug 14 00:31 /usr/sbin/suexec
