Error opening serial port '/dev/ttyUSB7'

Hi, I have run serial monitor and uploading code to my Arduino Mega 2560 properly on my RPi. Suddenly, I can't upload and read from serial monitor. I have tried reinstall arduino IDE and rewrite preferences.txt but I have still same problem. I noticed that I have port ttyUSB7 and its finding USB3 even though I have set it in preferences.txt

here is last few lines of error message:

Thank you for any help

Can you select the correct port under tools -> port in the IDE?

Yes I can. I have restart every thing and get this error message. I have set everything correct so ports number is 0 everywhere (preferences.txt, toolbar and error message), I have set right board (Ardunio Mega 2056), and also programmer (AVRISP mkll - I use the same on windows).

After error I can't choose port number as you can see on the photo.
So if I want to change it I have to restart arduino IDE or unplug and plug USB cable.

Well, I have trying something and I accidently unplug power supply from raspberry. I tried the same thing and now it works. :ok_man: :man_facepalming:
