Validation failed when trying to delete a repository

Using GitLab 15.10.2 Community Edition.

I deleted several projects, following the tag deletion and container tag deletion approach to reassure there’s no data associated to the project

However, I received the following message in some of them:

Validation failed: Name has already been taken

Awkward error. After some time we thought of renaming the projects and then deleting them again. This solved the issue.

But why is this happening? Should I open a bug in the official GitLab’s Issue tracker?
