Please give us more information on what the workflow is doing. Offer the workflow steps. Republish the workflow and compare the results.

There is no such thing in SharePoint as "versioning for the delete process". When an item is deleted, the item and it's entire version history move to the recycle bin, and eventually disappear into oblivion.

I found the problem, the create item is in the "Apply to each 2", when I removed it it worked fine. I guess the reason was copying it from the update item.

However, I am sure I will be corrected if ...

It is by design that Workflow local variables for Date/Time store value doesn’t go with the site regional settings and it cannot be changed for the time being.

In my case (SP Workflow 2013 engine), the lookup column provided only the option for comparing "equal to" and "not equal to", so there was no "is empty".
