I had a second domain controller and demoted it. now when I tried to add a new user in AD  I get:
The directory service was unable to allocate a relative identifier.

I run readmin /showreps I get:

Default-First-Site-Name\LACOFS1
DC Options: IS_GC
Site Options: (none)
DC object GUID: f3f5033b-21c2-4a69-8945-253e50cb8fe6

The question is I am trying to use repadmin /delete but the example is:
repadmin /delete CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=contoso,DC=com DC01 97c68f88-3864-4a12-9962-ca389937e237._msdcs.contoso.com /localonly

What is DC=com DC01? When I try DC=local or DC=LACOTEMPDC I get:
Unknown option "DC=local"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like that DC held the RID Master roles.

Find all 5 FSMO roles so you know what you're missing.
Seize the missing roles.
Use a Metadata cleanup to get rid of the old DC.
Check/delete any instance of the old server from DNS, AD Sites and Services and AD itself (if you find any).
