Did you perhaps quit while the output of a shell-command was being
displayed, because it took too long?  In that situation Emacs can end up
in a state where (minibuffer-window) points to the *Shell Command
Output* buffer, and kill-buffer will refuse to kill the buffer.

You can reset the minibuffer window with

(set-window-buffer (minibuffer-window) (get-buffer " *Minibuf-0*"))
