It seems the problem was caused by shared folder between host and guest 
systems, respectively by files’ owner and group. When I copied file to 
designated folder, everything started to work. However permissions and other 
things are the same from the point of readability and writability. It’s just 
that files are not shared between systems and are owned by someone else. It is 
strange anyway… And honestly, I see no reason why this is happening.
