Labeling contour lines created using the Geostatistical Analyst

I have used the Geostatistical Analyst to created a kriged contour map. I have created contour lines on the map by using "Contours" within the Symbology tab. Now I would like to label the contour lines using Maplex. It is my understanding that I need to export the contours by right-clicking on the kriged layer and selecting Data and Export to Vector. When I do this, I am getting the message that my input layer is not valid. I am unsure how to solve this problem.

Thanks for your help.
