SharePoint 2010 - This item is no longer available.

Issue:

On some library views when you drop down the edit control block (ECB) you will see the following error.

This item is no longer available. It may have been deleted by another user. Click 'OK' to refresh the page.

To resolve this issue it is necessary to re-create the library view.

Workaround:

On the library with the view issue, go to "Library Settings" and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click on "Create View," choose to start the view from an existing view, be sure to select "Make this the default view." Choose to create the new view from the view that is having the issue. (e.g. Versions).

When creating your new library view, choose any name you please. If you are replacing the default view, be sure to select "Make this the default view." Be sure to make it a public view and keep all other settings to duplicate the other view, and click "OK".
