When do you create a new Data Extension from the email studio you might get the very generic message that says Error: updating filter at the very last step of the process.

One of the most probable if not the reason is that, the data extension name already exists. To solve this try to add more uniqueness to your name.

In the documentation is that this error occurs when you have additional spaces at the end or beginning of your data extension name.
