You have to rename the file. 'aux' is a reserved name on Windows and
must not be used for files/directories, because it gets redirected to a
device. It is not possible to create such files.

The same applies to 'com' or 'lpt' or some other reserved names.

Either rename the file on a linux machine, or use the repository browser
to rename the file directly in the repository.
