For Sweep command it is necessary that the path must intersect the plane of the profile. Does your 3d line Sketch starts or ends in different place. Make sure line end is exactly at the center of the circle.
Just looking at the sketch, it appears the profile (circle) is too big. It would cause the inside radii of the path to be self-intersecting.
