I remember in the past, WordPress was not allowing you to delete a plugin that is active at least on one website.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

As far as I can tell, this has always been the case, we're already tracking this issue in #31673.

  • Resolution duplicate deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened


But, I don't see any warnings. The only thing I get is that if I want to remove the plugin. See video:

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone set to Awaiting Review
  • Version changed from 5.7.2 to 4.6

Thanks for the additional details! Indeed, I was able to reproduce the issue.

The warning is still in core, but it looks like it's no longer displayed, apparently due to the "Shiny Updates" changes introduced in [37714] for WordPress 4.6.
