When we try to delete a space which was imported from a Cloud version then the import does not complete and we see a foreign key violation on the table usercontent_relation in the logs
Steps to Reproduce
- Export a space from cloud version
- Import it to Confluence 5.10.x
- Delete the imported space
The space should be deleted
The below exception is thrown in the atlassian-confluence.log file and space does not get deleted the progress is stuck at some point:

Please take a Db backup and throughly test the below workaround before applying it to production instance
A workaround is to truncate the table
