Unicode error: label empty or too long

P: 2
While I was running sphinx-quickstart in ubuntu something happened and I got this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Traceback (most recent call last):
  2.   File "/usr/local/bin/sphinx-quickstart", line 9, in <module>
  3.     load_entry_point('Sphinx==1.3.1', 'console_scripts', 'sphinx-quickstart')()
  4.   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Sphinx-1.3.1-py2.7.egg/sphinx/", line 1570, in main
  5.     generate(d)
  6.   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Sphinx-1.3.1-py2.7.egg/sphinx/", line 1303, in generate
  7.     d['project_url'] = urlquote(d['project'].encode('idna'))
  8.   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/encodings/", line 164, in encode
  9.     result.append(ToASCII(label))
  10.   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/encodings/", line 103, in ToASCII
  11.     raise UnicodeError("label empty or too long")
  12. UnicodeError: label empty or too long
I only put the name of the project, the name of the author and the version, the rest is by default. I dont know what could be happening, because I am following the instructions and I am a novice in this topic.
