I have 3 Dual Duct air loops in my model and added Multizone Heating Average setpoints on the high side the ones that I have assigned to the loops are called: SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE 1 SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE 3

I am sure that SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE 2 was in one of the loops was deleted and then readded, hence the skipping of 2. When running my simulation it gives me this error:

* Severe * IP: IDF line~57069 Error detected in Object=SETPOINTMANAGER:MULTIZONE:HEATING:AVERAGE, name=SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE 2 * ~~~ * Field [HVAC Air Loop Name] is required but was blank

When looking at the E-Plus code itself it said that SETPOINT MANAGER MULTI ZONE HEATING AVERAGE 2 was still there, but was unassigned to a zone. Is there a way to delete this setpoint manager in OpenStudio so I no longer see this fatal error?

I think that it is known issue. Try standing on that node and see whether on the edit tab two setpoint mangers are showing up. If that is the case, and any way you could open the OSM file in text editor, search for that setpoint manager and delete it's entry.
