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?
