Permanent temporary error

I’m trying to delete a document but am getting this response:

{"error":"Internal Server Error","reason":"Internal error: Unable to increment sequence: MCResponse status=TMPFAIL, opcode=INCREMENT, opaque=0, msg: Temporary failure"}

I’ve rebooted my server, waited hours etc… still no luck. What can I do to get it to work?

@nick-couchbase first of all, from the error you posted it seems that an increment operation is failing, not a delete.

Would it be possible to provide a bit more context to the problem?

I’m trying to delete a document via the sync gateway rest api. I’m definitely not doing an increment, I don’t even know what that is.
