That is an error message from the server.  The filename being passing to the
server is not what the server is actually expecting.  Either the case is
wrong (some servers are case-sensitive), or some characters are getting
changed to other characters due to Ansi<->Unicode conversions, or the file
really does not exist (maybe something else deleted it before you call

That is a very old version of Indy 9.  Try upgrading to the last 9.0.50
snapshot and see if the problem continues.

Rather than retreive the entire folder listing just to check one for file,
you could ask the server for that one file by itself instead:

OrgFile := ChangeFileExt(FileList.Strings[0], '.txt');
FFtp.List(nil, OrgFile, false);
if FFtp.ListResult.Count > 0 then
  TmpFile := ChangeFileExt(OrgFile, '.tmp');
  FFtp.Get(OrgFile, FLocalFolder + TmpFile, False);
  RenameFile(FLocalFolder + TmpFile, FLocalFolder + OrgFile);
