Hi,
you cannot delete a template as long as there are linked clones for it, 
and if you convert a linked clone to a template it is still a linked clone.

You can create a full clone of the linked clone first. Then convert that 
to a template and delete the linked clone and the old template.

Best Regards,
Fabian
