There was a space in project name definition. So removed the space and fixed it.

I also got same error when I was doing the same. In fact I did it with the help of Gopi.

 

In my case the mistakes was 

 

1> In the Manage Jenkins->configure system - I did not mention the correct path details for the "Path to Git executable"

 

2> JDK Installations was not configured. 


Thanks Gopi for your generous help.
