activating publishing feature

May 31, 2016 at 8:36 AM
I have create sub-site of type decision meeting workspace

when I try to activate publishing feature, it throes an error "The feature failed to activate because a list at 'Pages' already exists in this site. Delete or rename the list and try activating the feature again. "

please note that the parent site has publishing feature enabled and therefore Pages library exists at top level not at the new sub-site I have created.
