In general for TDM Portal publish errors, here is a quick ref check list:
1. Check your TDMPublish.log for errors.
2. If not in Debug mode, set debug mode (Enable Debug Logging)
3. Rerun the issue to generate new logs.
4. Search for errors.
5. Evaluate all found errors to pinpoint where error is.

Click on the 90 and change it to 30.
It was re-run and it was successful. However, this is only a method to do a one time change to test it out with. It does not permanently save your new value.
To Save your desired new default value, double click on the pre-publish action.
The Edit Pre-Publish panel popups up. Please note that an error message appears if you try to enter a blank value. Enter a number greater than 0 seconds.
Note that 30 was entered and Done button in the lower right corner is clicked to save changes.
This procedure will permanently save your default values for future runs without having to change it each time. This successfully solved this issue.
