    This may sounds obvious but wait a while and try again.

    Were you performing any other operations on the storage account recently, this might still be in progress. Maybe take a look at the activity log.

    @ChNa Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting here!

    Adding more information to the above response! Please try the following: Login as (or ask your) global admin and attempt to delete the storage account

    Unlikely but if the above fails ask Global Administrator add themselves as a Storage Blob Data Owner and then try to delete the Storage Account.

    Remove Resource Lock, If the issue still persist, I would like to work closer on this issue.

    Based on the error message you can also check this SO thread

    Hope this helps!
    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
