Deleting IP entry error


I am trying to remove an IP entry using: --- ip addr del dev br-lan
but I get the error `ip: RTNETLINK answers: Address not available.

I am unsure what I am doing wrong as the IP entry is dev br-lan lladdr ac:ee:XX:XX:XX:XX ref 1 used 0/0/0 probes 1 REACHABLE

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you`

maybe this will help

Hi @sycohexor, thank you for the reply.
What I ended up doing was flushing the interface which isn't great but it is a temporary solution.
ip neigh flush dev br-lan
