Let me get this straight, you are not trying to edit an image imported into
Scribus, but an image that was inside a PDF that was imported into Scribus?

The Scribus PDF import feature is as far as I understand NOT intended as a
way to edit the contents of the PDF but rather to be able to include a PDF
as a "vector image" in the document.

While it may be possible to edit the contents of a PDF by importing it into
Scribus and ungrouping it that is really not the right way of doing things.

There are tools that can extract images etc from a PDF.
