SharePoint 2010: Error on publishing a custom content type via content type hub

Recently I tried to publish a custom content type of my content type hub from within a feature receiver and received the following error: 10/27/2011 09:17:14.74 w3wp.exe (0x20A8) 0x0F5C SharePoint Server Taxonomy fj2u Unexpected Content type publish failed with exception.
