This is an issue that can happen in both Drupal 8 and Drupal 9. This is due to the fact that Drupal doesn’t actually delete the data for the field when you delete the field. It deletes the data during cron runs. If cron hasn’t been run enough times since you deleted the field, drupal won’t let you uninstall the module.

Retrieving the image URL from an image field in Drupal 8 and 9 seemed pretty straightforward too. Even the solution for getting the image style URL from a simple image field can be found quite easily. Getting the image URL from a media field can also be looked up easily.
