This is just a dump of some notes I took during a typical SharePoint escapade. In this situation I was deploying a web template or feature related to page layouts. If the below seems similar to your case, this may help.

Solution:

In my particular case the issue was related to a content type id being mistyped for the page layout. Check your references to content type id’s with the particular item that is causing this error. In my case I had entered 00x{CT_guid} and not 0x{CT_guid}
