Error when merging without deleting the branch



We use git flow a lot at our company. This means we have the master branch and the development branch.

We have recently updated Bitbucket from 6.4.0 to 7.1.0 and are experiencing a strange error message:

Bitbucket cannot delete the source branch.

Fun fact: I did not select the source branch to be deleted.

Peek 2020-04-06 17-47.gifWhy is this happening? Before it worked perfectly. Are missing some setting somewhere (like automatically delete merged branches)?
