VG system is empty, but still:
# /sbin/vgremove 'system'
failes with status code 5, which means 'can't remove volume group
containing logical volumes' (from man page).

Looks like a bug in vgremove?

Possibly. Could you fill in these gaps in the puzzle:

0. Which distro?

1. Do a lvmdump for bug report:

    lvmdump -ma

2. Try with verbose

    vgremove -vvvv &> vgremove-dirty.out

3. Check if lvmetad is running:

    ps aux | grep lvmetad

3.1 if so, the issue is likely to go away after restarting it. If you `gcore` or `kill -SEGV` it to get a core dump it may help us.

3.2 do another lvmdump here, to get "updated" data after lvmdump restart

3.3 retry vgremove

    vgremove -vvvv &> vgremove-reloaded.out

4. pastebin the vgremove-dirty.out and we will be able to tell more then.
