Before getting into the database, try the cinder reset-state command. It’s available in the horizon ui starting in Juno.
Otherwise use the command line [1].

Hi Eli,

you have to log-in to MySQL cinder database , and try deleting the required volume from the volumes table using the id.
if it fails due to foreign key constraints in volume metadata table, try deleting the corresponding volume metadata and then try to delete the required volume row.
