Illegal means that you cannot restore this snapshot, it was modified by merging
data from the next layer, so it does not represent the state of the VM
at the time
of the snapshot any more.

Failure to remove a snapshot should be recoverable by retrying the operation.

If retrying still fails, you should be able to delete the snapshot
after stopping the VM.

If this also fails, there may be an issue in the volume metadata that
needs to be
fixed manually.

Please file a bug if this is the case.
