Variations Issues - welcome page cannot be deleted

You may run into this:

"The item that you are trying to delete is the current welcome page and cannot be deleted."

Problem: Startup page does not exist (languages removed?)

Solution: Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Modify All Settings -> "Welcome page" under "Look and Feel"

Set it back to default.aspx

Also check the hidden list: /Relationships List/AllItems.aspx
