Can't delete datasets

Earlier I posted a topic that I can't delete datasets. They are still there. Can somebody help me?


I can't delete two datasets from power BI service. When i try to delete those datasets, I get the following error:


Something went wrong

Please allow time for the dataset removal to be processed, and then try deleting the dataset again.
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

The two datasets are not connected to any report, dashboard, content pack, an other workspace, or shared with somebody else.

Can someone help me deleting the two datasets?

Just wanted to point out that AliB's recommendation solved this issue for me.  Create dummy report from dataset you wish to delete, save, then delete dummy report, then delete dataset.
