The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure

Hi All I am getting the below error while trying to activate SharePoint publishing feature in a team site in SharePoint 2010. Below is the full error message.

Site:
The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa
Web:
The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site scoped feature 'FeatureDefinition/22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416' (ID: '22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416'). Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.

Solution:
For this go to the Site Actions -> site settings and then from the Settings page, under Site collection Administration click on Site collection features.

This will display all the site collection features. Search for SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure and click on Activate as shown in the figure.

Now it should work.
