We are actively working on portions of this functionality as a priority. The open ticket is here: https://trello.com/c/JYdLenNX
This may or may not be your case (I was able to generate the link for a history - no error message there) on the public Main Galaxy instance at http://usegalaxy.org. However, I would wait to use this function until it is resolved.
Just to make sure about this - at what step did you see the error? Or was it later in the process - meaning, loading into a local Galaxy or other? Please be aware that these files take time to "create" once the job is started - the link is shown but the data behind it takes some time to compress. The larger the history, the longer this can be. The compressed history stays on the server for a period of time, so you can get it later. This will be true even after the correction in the ticket above.
Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
