This fix no longer works. You are not allowed to add local accounts, only domain accounts. When adding all domain users, the problem still is not resolved.

An account that IS configured as an admin for the user profile service but IS NOT a member of the db_owner role in the user profile database will see the error above. To resolve this, just add the account you are running under to this role, make the desired deletes, and then remove the account from the role.

This does not work. I cannot add a local account. Is there another way around this? Thanks!

Take the farm account and not the setup account to delete the entries.
The farm account is normally “responsible” for the user profile sync.

Even using the Farm Account fails.
