I don't think the O.P. had in mind asking for a fix. I think he was, in
essence, trying to create a pure function with Block...
f = Block[{n = 2}, #]&
... and then trying to evaluate that with argument Plot[n x, {x,1,2}].
He did this in one step, of course--the second of his two code lines.
The trouble, of course, is that the n in Block[{n = 2}, #]& is now
localized to that Block, whereas the n in Plot[n x, {x,1,2}] is not
localized in that Plot.
