Ther is no subscription, there are no users, there are no service principals, no user flows, and no identity providers; but still it does not allows me to delete this tennant.

    I have faced a similar kind of issue when I want to delete my demo tenant for some other reasons

    Please go to Azure Active directory > users and create a new user in the format @xxxxxx .
    Assign the global admin role to that user.
    Now Logon with that newly created user and go to Azure AD > Users. You should see the two user objects
    Then remove/delete the external account with which you were logged in earlier.(Ignore if you have not logged)
    Once done you can try to delete the directory and this time the directory will get deleted.
    The directory deletion information takes around 24 hours to replicate across all the systems the directory deletion information has converged across all related systems within the Azure infrastructure.

    Hope you referenced MS article ==>

    Try from PowerShell also ==>

    Hope this helps you fix your issue. If you still get any errors please provide the details and I will try to help further. if you feel, you the answer to your questions, please mark this blog as an Accepted Answer
