Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Feature with Id '' is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope

Strange error in sharepoint.

Struggled a lot to get the solution for this error finally one of my team member helped on solving this issue.

Cause for the error :

This error comes because of unused server in the multiple farm server environment.

In my case we are using multiple servers with the one of the server giving error on the central administration.

Solution :

Remove the unwanted / Error causing server from the server or fix the error

from the below section in Central administration site

Open the Central Administration -> System Settings ->Servers -> Manage Servers in this farm

Thanks !!!
