These seem reversed in unixfsys.d's cl_delete_file():

const char *msg =
	"Cannot delete the file ~S.~%C library error: ~S" :
	"Cannot delete the directory ~S.~%C library error: ~S";

And to signal error this code is used:

                        (6, @'file-error', /* condition */
                         ECL_T, /* continuable */
                         ecl_make_constant_base_string(msg,strlen(msg)), /* format */
                         cl_list(2, file, c_error), /* format args */
                         @':pathname', /* file-error options */

With at the REPL debugger the type reported:

Condition of type: SIMPLE-FILE-ERROR
