I see. This is a new version that would also work with org attachment
links. I haven't tested it much and the function is a bit tricky, but I
think it works fine:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun my-org-rename-link-file-at-point ()
    (let* ((curr-dir (if (equal (org-element-property :type (org-element-context)) "attachment")
			 (concat (abbreviate-file-name (org-attach-dir)) "/")
		       (abbreviate-file-name default-directory)))
	   (current-path (if (equal (org-element-property :type (org-element-context)) "attachment")
			     (concat curr-dir (org-element-property :path (org-element-context)))
			   (org-element-property :path (org-element-context))))
	   (new-path (read-file-name "Rename file at point to: " current-path)))
      (rename-file current-path new-path)
      (message (concat "moved to: " new-path))
      (if (directory-name-p new-path)
	  (setq new-path (concat new-path (file-name-nondirectory current-path)))
	(setq new-path new-path))
      (if (equal (org-element-property :type (org-element-context)) "attachment")
	  (my-org-replace-link-file (file-name-nondirectory current-path)
				     curr-dir "" new-path))
	(my-org-replace-link-file current-path
				   curr-dir "" new-path)))))

  (defun my-org-replace-link-file (from to)
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (while (re-search-forward org-bracket-link-regexp nil t)
	(cond ((string-match-p (concat "attachment:" from) (match-string 1))
	       (replace-match (concat "[[attachment:" to "]]")))
	      ((string-match-p from (match-string 1))
	       (replace-match (concat "[[file:" to "]]")))))))

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
