This is one of the bugs that I came across in Google Cloud Platform.
That bucket name is taken. Try another.
And then I go check the Google Cloud Platform and the dashboard, and I don’t see anything….
As of March 27, 2021, it seems like if you delete a project with a bucket, GCP won’t release the bucket name. It marks it as not having a permission issue. To resolve this, you have to run this command.
gsutil rm -r gs://linguasaga.com <-- linguasaga.com is the name of the bucket
Another word of advice - it seems like there are instances where the functionality of the UI is lagging behind the command line functionality. If there is a UI discrepancy, make sure you use the command line/SDK tools!
