It would be quite useful to get the actual error. Also, I'd like to know versions of Trac and your installed plugins. I strongly suspect this is a custom field provided/created by a plugin, and that plugin will complain and ask you to upgrade whenever you delete the field that it created. I know some hour/timing/estimation plugins do this to maintain needed custom fields. Try to disable plugins to find which one "hangs on" to the field(s) you want to remove.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is no doubt because fields are removed other plugins depend on, and they will then require upgrade to resolve the issue - and thereby adding the fields again.

What they should do is provide their default settings using Option instead, and since [6485] CustomFieldAdminPlugin will not be able to delete such fields.
