If I remember correctly, we received this error when the maximum file size on the target site was set to be less than the size of one of the files you're trying to deploy.  You can either bump the setting way up, or manually deploy the overlarge file.

To change the maximum file size:

Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application General Settings    

Also, check here for other settings to look for if you do determine that you are going to have to support large files:

Hope this helps.
