This SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss how to resolve the error: Provisioning did not succeed. Details: The site template was not provisioned successfully. OriginalException: File or arguments not valid for site template ‘BLANKINTERNET#0’.

I faced this issue while trying to create a new site collection in SharePoint 2019. Below is the screenshot of the issue while creating a site collection.

Provisioning did not succeed. Details: The site template was not provisioned successfully

The workaround of the issue is creating an empty site collection using STSADM command next choose the template to create a site.

Syntax 
STSADM.EXE -o createsite -url <url-to-site-collection> -ownerlogindomain\user -owneremail <email-address>

Example 
STSADM.EXE -o createsite -url http://servername:80/sites/RajSitecollection-ownerloginmydomain\rswain-owneremail rswain@sharepointonline.com -sitetemplate CMSPUBLISHING#0

Remember, using the “Blank Site” template does NOT create a completely empty site collection. The site collection created by the Blank Site template creates some content for the default website. You can see the difference if you create a site collection using both methods and then inspect the content of the created sites using SharePoint designer 2013.

Then go to http://servername:80/sites/RajSitecollection , it will ask you to choose a site template. After select “Collaboration Portal”, the site is created without error.
