rm -f will not say "no such file or directory" error. try it.

but, it could say unable to delete in case the removed target is 
mountpoint and it's "busy", which is error that should be shown, as i 
will likely be reason for errors that will follow. in fact, the script 
should abort if the operation is not success. i.e path to be deleted 
can't be deleted.

unlikely to happen for this very particular case, but we have this kind 
of "hide everything pattern" used everywhere, because stupid reasons 
like above "has been this for years, i don't know why, i'll just 
replicate same code"
