Null pointer exceptions are the java error of last resort, and usually mean you need to look elsewhere for the actual cause. We can't tell you anything more than "it went wrong" from an NPE.

You need to look at more of the error on this one. Where did the NPE occur (should be the next couple of lines of log - you've chopped it off before anything of any use to us is printed out). Is there a "caused by" later down the log?

I'm getting same error when trying to delete user who has no Activity, and isn't a Reporter/Assignee on any issues so what is preventing deletion?
