Summary
Exception occurs when sObject.recalculateFormulas() is called and the query which retrieves the object contains reference fields.

Example error:
FATAL_ERROR System.UnexpectedException: Opportunity: bad field names on insert/update call: Account

NOTE : If the fields are not updatable and they are in SOQL, it causes the error. Some special fields like IsPersonAccount for Account, IsClosed for Case on the standard objects are also not updatable, so it should cause the same issue as well.

Repro
1) Add a formula field on Case
2) Create an account record
3) Create a case record which has reference to 2)
4) Open developer console and invoke the apex code below from the Execute Anonymous Window

Case c = [select id , account.name from Case WHERE id='500xx000000Yl1I'];
c.recalculateFormulas();

Workaround
Avoid retrieving lookup fields in SOQL queries that retrieves the target sObjects.
