Hi Karen,

Please review this esri Knowledge Base technical article,

Problem: Receiving errors when uploading a shapefile to ArcGIS Online, Business Analyst Online, or C... 

Hope this helps,

The most common issue I've run into (personally and with others) is #1c in the referenced article - it's easy to end up with a shapefile in a folder, and that small oversight will trigger the generic error when uploading to ArcGIS Online.
