I got this and tried two separate things that worked on two separate devices.

When it happened on iPhone 3GS I just tried it a few more times and it eventually worked.

When it happened on my 4S, I tried doing the above, but it didn't work, so I tried wiping it, and it worked. I then restored the backup after jailbreaking.

So just try it a few more times, and if that doesn't work, make sure it's a clean iPhone that you will restore the backup of after jailbreaking.
