Default Uninstall system app issue

If i use es file explorer and use the app mgr then press system app and select which app i want to uninstall and it says uninstall failed. Root explorer is on and system is mounted rw. If i use tibu to uninstall a system app it will say apk cant be located. Im on moar v8 with stock kernel but this same thing was also occurring on ktoonsez kernel as well. Supersu is set to allow and show notifications. How do fix this?

I usually use root explorer and go to root, system, app, and then delete whichever apk I choose. Have you tried that method?

That does work. It only started happening since 4.3 i think the emulated directories is what is causing the problem
