I'm having the "Retrieving folder..." error message on every folder that
contains an unread item. Akonadi fsck/vacuum/top/start no longer fixes
I have in the past followed the how to fix akonadi when there was a
migration and that did all the work but it seemed like a hammer to crack
nut as you have to reconfigure kmail etc.

Is there a way to just delete the data and any related indexes to force
reindexing process?

I'm running out of ideas hence i hope this idea may help

I removed the directory .local/share/akonadi/ after closing kontact and
stopping akonadi using "akonadict stop" by giving it another name; just for
safety. After that I just started kontact, which starts akonadi and all of its
processes. This builds a new directory like the above with a new mysql
database and after some patience almost all is back to normal, except pointers
to Trash folders which used to point to trash folders of an account, but I
found these folders pointing to what seems to be a random folder in an
account. You need to be patient and observe that all folders are filled again
from the local folders and from folders on an IMAP server, before you direct
the trash folder to the proper trash folder.

I needed this to do a few times and never lost a single message.
