OK, so what you are trying to do is to rename a Collection not an album.
You have added multiple Collections. Albums would be the directories one
level below these Collections.
Currently I see no way in digiKam to rename a Collection. Maybe you
should enter a wishlist item in the KDE bugzilla for this.
digiKam expects you to enter the top level directory of all your images
as a Collection. The individual directories below this top level
Collection are the albums. Yes its a bit weird. digiKam is a bit
schizophrenic in that it has large parts of its behaviour modelled on a
file manager with the image management parts layered on top. However
there are holes in the file manager part as you have discovered.
