I am getting this error when running any batch on the site:

No active batch.

I thought this may have been a server issue, so I tried it locally, but I got the same error. I tried deleting all the records in the batch table, but I also got the same result.

The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the web server is down. Why would that effect batches that do not connect to their servers?

I had the same issue. It was caused by the secure pages issue. So I went to secure pages settings page, and in the ignore list, I added my url (e.g. admin/structure/abc). It worked good. Hope it helps someone.
