Error in Target Name when trying to Import XML Workspace Schema to Enterprise GDB

I get a recurring error in importing an XML workspace file to my GDB.

I first delete all feature classes from my Enterprise GDB using ArcCatalog, then I proceed to import  XML workspace file into it, one that will populate the GDB with a schema that represented in a large number of feature classes.

Essentially, what I am doing here is a mass delete of feature classes, then I populate the GDB with an updated schema. This is a necessary part of my workflow as I am creating scripts using FME and need to jig the GDB schema every so often.

In doing the XML workspace import into the GDB, I get a conflict with the Target Name. It is highlighted in red. I don't understand why this keeps happening. The conflict happens with the feature class that I updated. I update the feature class in ArcDiagrammer and export the entire XML for mass import.

Q. Did you come across this same problem? How did you go about a solution? Any thoughts and/or comments are helpful.
