500 Error trying to delete project

I try to delete project with rest API, I get 500 error even though it seems that the project does get deleted.

Using oauth with Bearer token, I’m trying to delete a project via the rest api like this:

curl -X DELETE \
  https://api.atlassian.com/ex/jira/.../rest/api/3/project/11349 \
  -H 'authorization: Bearer ... ' \
  -H 'cache-control: no-cache'

API returns 500 error like this:

HTTP 500 https://api.atlassian.com/ex/jira/.../rest/api/3/project/11349
Read timed out
