ERROR: Permanent copy of file WORK.'SASTMP-000000099'n.UTILITY was deleted.

First I have been getting error messages about a "lock is not available," but I think it was my clumsy code.  I made sure I was not overwriting datasets in my program.

However now, I'm see this weird error I have not seen before:

ERROR: Permanent copy of file WORK.'SASTMP-000000099'n.UTILITY was deleted.

What is this, and how can I fix it?  I've looked through the web, and there isn't much answers out there.

Thank you in advance.
