Delete empty pages requires these properties on the pages to be deleted:
* No custom master pages are used, only standard Left and Right.
* No content of any kind in the text flow on the body page, not even
a carriage return.
* The settings are applied to the files in the book window.
* Because Book window settings supercede file-level settings, except
when Read from File is set, when you choose Read from File, the
file's settings must be correct for the results you want. You may
need to experiment to see which is less confusing to define and
maintain- a combination of read from file and book-level settings, or
only settings from the book window.

This error seems to indicate that some other activity is occurring
during the book updating process, such as invoking Apply Master
Pages, or perhaps it's a result of your script's activity.
If you observe the requirements, you shouldn't need a script.
