Failed to activate feature ‘PublishingPrerequisites’ issue

This morning, I created a site collection and tried to activate the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature. I received this error

Failed to activate feature ‘PublishingPrerequisites’ (ID: a392da98-270b-4e85-9769-04c0fde267aa) ……………

Followed by a long stack trace…

I addressed this issue by doing the following:

Start -> Run -> type IISRESET and hit enter.

I went back into the Site Collection Features gallery, and activated the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature successfully.
