Tested it in 3.1.1 and had no problems. Please post if you are still having issues.

Apologies for posting on an old thread. I ran into the same issue today. Seems the error appears when you have more than 1 Joomla site opened for administration. When I logged out of the other site, then did the menu trash uninstallation on the erring site, the problem dissapeared and I was able to delete the trashed menu without further issues.

This is on Joomla 3.3.6.

Hi everyone,

I guess it's an issue that came back as i ran into the very same problem. It was on a 3.3.6 version. And i was just trying to empty the trash of a menu. 

As soon as i logged out of another joomla 3.3.6 site opened on the same browser, it worked right away with no erreur message.
