i keep getting the below error when i try to delete the default.aspx page.
Server error: The URL 'default.aspx' is invalid. It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or
refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web.

And if i try to delete any page in sitepages, it just give me error code 6404 and never let me delete. any idea why this is happening?

try with power shell what does it says

   1: $web = Get-SPWeb "http://intranet"

   2: $lib = $web.GetFolder("sitepages")

   3: $file = $lib.Files["mypage.aspx"];

   4: $file.Delete();

   5: $web.dispose();

or try deleting programatically
see what is the result.

another thing u should not delete the default.aspx page if you don't have a replacement home page assigned to the site.
Are you deleting from local server or from different machine.

Make sure you have enough permission to delete first.

you can try one more thing.
try creating a page first and try deleting the page see what happens....

do you have any event receivers that has been deployed or any features with event receivers check it....

Hi.
it seems that your site collection has reached its quota.

Alternative issue could be that the database has reached its limit and is set to read-only.
