Failed to execute (UploadServiceDefinition) Error 999999

I recently upgrading my server site all to 10.4.1 from 10.4, and for some reason am experiencing issues publishing and overwriting map services from my 10.4 ArcGIS for Desktop.  

A strange thing occurs: the publishing actually works.  If I check my MapService in Server Manager or the hosted layer in Portal, the dates and information reflect the details when I published.  However, ArcMap says the publishing failed.  

In the geoprocessing results window, I get an Upload Service Definition Error:

ERROR 999999, failed to execute (UploadServiceDefinition).  

If I look at the details, when comparing to a service that successfully publishes on a different system, I notice the SOAP Service URL and REST Service URL is missing.  

That being said, the service does actually publish, but ArcMap throws and error. 

Any ideas here?

Do you see any errors in the Server logs? If the UploadServiceDefinition tool fails, it's likely failing on the Server side.

It had to do with the publishing tools service having some bad parameters due to an interrupted upgrade.  Once I fixed that, the issue was resolved

Hello Jay,

Can you please share the details regarding what and how did you apply the fix? I am having a similar issue, but no obvious help is there.

Thanks in advance.
