He said this error appeared while trying to delete a table using a query as given below:

DELETE FROM table_name where column_name IN (SELECT column_name FROM table_name WHERE column_name > 10);

DELETE FROM table_name where column_name IN ( SELECT * FROM (SELECT column_name FROM table_name WHERE column_name > 10) AS X) ;
