I just had the same issue: 550 Cannot rename from partitioned data set HLQA.JOB.LIB(XXX) to a different partitioned data set HLQA.JOB.LIB.YYY.

The original title was not quite right. We try to rename a *member of a library* (pds / partitioned dataset), not a dataset.
Fillezilla has issues in other cases as well to distinguish between libraries (partitioned datasets) and datasets (files).
In my case HLQA.JOB.LIB.YYY is a valid file name as well, but we can't rename a member into a dataset name, therefore the rename fails. The new name needs to be specified as HLQA.JOB.LIB(YYY) --> member YYY of library HLQA.JOB.LIB .

In listings Fillezilla should (but does not) show all files starting with
HLQA.JOB.LIB. and all members for HLQA.JOB.LIB



The first two datasets will be listed with
HLQA.JOB.LIB. (dot at the end)
and the three members with
HLQA.JOB.LIB (no dot at the end)
