Bug Description

It seems there is no way to delete tag at all from tag browser. There is no 'Delete' button or 'Delete' item in context menu. When I replace tag with nothing calibre offers to delete it but as a result I see following

calibre, version 2.25.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>TypeError</b>:QTableWidgetItem.setText(str): first argument of unbound method must have type 'QTableWidgetItem'

You are not talking about the tag browser but are instead talking about the "Manage Tags" dialog. In that dialog, when you set a tag to nothing you get a message "Item is blank: An item cannot be set to nothing. Delete it instead", which is not an "offer to delete". There is a "Delete" icon (the green recycle arrows) on that dialog that deletes the current tag, so there is a way to delete a tag in Manage Tags.

I agree that it shouldn't throw the error when you empty the value and it produces the "You can't do that" message. I will fix that. It won't delete the tag.
