Encountering the following errors when trying to drop propagation.

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-00911: invalid character
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_LOGREP_UTIL", line 556
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_PROPAGATION_ADM", line 82
ORA-06512: at line 2

The propagation rule_set was dropped first of all together with its associated
rules, i.e delete_rules => TRUE. As a result, now unable to drop propagation
or add to it because the ruleset no longer exists.
Dba_streams_table_rules show several rules that do not exist in any other
dictionary table.
