Unable to delete sites in O365 sharepoint admin portal

Occasional Contributor

We did apply a retention policy. Both are offline now for almost week.

I still get the message:

"Site can not be deleted

A compliance policy is currently preventing this site from being removed"

The only place i know i set a retention policy is in O365-> Security & Compliance.

What are we missing?

First action for them was to start company Sync from background, this would take 24h to complete.
