I was drawing a commission on Affinity Designer (running MacOS Big Sur 11.2.1) when the eraser tool started only working partially, it was transparent now. I fiddled about with settings and checked some forums to no avail. This is when I decided to get a photo as evidence of the problem.

The photo shows several lines in 3 different brushes, the first I left alone, the second I went over with the eraser one and the third I went over twice. It was on the second trial of the pen brush my eraser magically started working after no change on my part, and to illustrate this I erased the top part of all the lines. Bearing in mind this lasted about 20 minutes and fixed itself on it's own I can only assume it was a bug and to report it. The opacity and flow were both at 100% the whole time and I don't believe I've ever changed that, and opacity under the colour wheel was kept at 100%.

It's possible your Eraser brush was set to a textured brush like Acrylics. Some of which have their opacity and flow set at 100% but will still produce the effects you are describing

If it happens again pick one of the brushes in the Basic category and try again

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
