Trying to import a partition table into another database using impdp/imp fails with the following error:

ORA-39083: Object type TABLE:"AUTO"."DWH_AUTO_ROE_DEALER_SUMMARY" failed to create with error:
ORA-00959: tablespace '_$deleted$557$0' does not exist"

ORA-39083: Object type CONSTRAINT failed to create with error:
ORA-00959: tablespace '_$deleted$556$0' does not exist


All the table partitions had once been moved to another tablespace and the original tablespace has now been dropped or the new tablespace where the partitions now reside has been renamed to the original tablespace name.
