The following 2 errors are repeatedly reported while using bleachbit in Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 64bit, but I am not sure if it's an error.

Your operating system: 
Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 64bit

There was a previous discussion about this. Before, you manually deleted the directory, and it seemed OK for now.

I Googled /root/.cache/doc, and it seems to be created by FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). Would you please confirm with this command?

mount | grep fuse

There are many kinds of FUSE file systems such as SSH, FTP, SMB, Amazon S3, and encrypted file systems. Do you know which one you have?

My apologies, I did not compare the error message with my previous post, but now that I tried to see if the error appears and it doesn't. On the other hand all the drives listed below are NTFS.

ineuw@lm191dt~$ mount | grep fuse

I now know why the problem of deleting "/root/.cache/doc/by-app" returned after dealing with it successfully the last time. Then, I was using Linux Mint 19, in which I was able delete the folder manually as root, and the problem never returned. This time I upgraded to LM 19.1, which doesn't allow me to delete the folder, even as root.

So, now that the problem is known, I am not concerned about it. Will wait for resolution by the developers, as I am sure that someone else as well reported it. Please consider this issue closed.

If the error returns and you are able to figure out which FUSE file system it is, let me know.

Since I don't know the answer to the FUSE question, I posted the issue on the Linux Mint forum here. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=286831

The problem is not consistent, and is not serious (for me), now that you explained, so please don't waste your time. It will resolve itself eventually. - Thanks.
