Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.
To activate the same, we need to activate some of decency site features in SharePoint online site features option. I am going to show to active the same features step by step.

Before starting the same, we need to know what is SharePoint publishing infrastructure it provides an improved way to create and store information displayed through the site's web pages.
We need two features to activate on SharePoint site. The first feature is the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature that we need to activate at the site collection features. Once the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature is activated, then the SharePoint Server Publishing site feature can be activated on sites within the site collection.

To do the same below are the steps to fix the issue:
  • Login to the SharePoint online site and try to activate SharePoint Server Publishing, we will be getting below error:

  • Now to activate the same, we need to enable SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature from site feature of site collection or site page.
  • Select gear box from the left side of the screen and click on site setting option.
  • Here select site collection features from the Site collection Administrator.

  • We will getting site collection features wizard, here we need to find Publishing infrastructure feature.

  • From the feature page SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure: Provides centralized libraries, content types, master pages and page layouts and enables page scheduling and other publishing functionality for a site collection.
  • Once this feature will be get activate, go back to the site features page from site setting under the site actions.
Note: SharePoint server publishing infrastructure will take some time to activate the same.


  • Select above highlighted features SharePoint server publishing and activate the same, we will not be getting above error.
  • Once this will get activated we can see many new app will get created under the Site contents. Go to site contents page by clicking gear box and select site contents

  • Also there many more web part will get added on the web part wizard page.

Thanks
