If you imported the image or layer from a JPeG (.jpg)
file, it will not have an alpha property for that layer.
Use menu: Layer / Transparency / Add alpha channel
Delete will then (by default) make the deleted section
When you save back to a JPeG, GIMP will paint the
background (of the saved image only) white.
Save into an XCF file to retain all of the layers,
