Packaging failed

I'm trying to publish a simple feature service from ArcMap 10.2. There are no errors when I analyze before publishing. When I try and publish, I get an error message: "Packaging failed". The Geoprocessing Results for Stage_Service shows the following error messages:

ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
No Layer or Table was initialized.
Failed to execute (StageService).

The map document contains one feature class of points from a File Geodatabase. I ran check geometry on the feature class and it has no errors. I tried creating a new blank map document and copying the layer to be published over just in case something was amiss with the mxd.
