XF 2.1 Server error when deleting users

I'm getting this error when I delete users (having found them in the admin panel and then hit Delete).
Nothing appears to happen with the modal, so I hit the Delete button again and then it processes.
The users are deleted.

Any idea where to start fixing this please?

I did a couple this morning but importantly did NOT request a rename. And they both processed just fine first time. Whereas an earlier one WITH a rename did the same misbehaviour + server error. Hence - suggests the error is related to the renaming element.
