<cocoon version="2.1" user-roles="/WEB-INF/user.xroles">

But when I try to upload, I'm getting the following error.  It looks like some kind of config error, but I think I've set things up per the instructions.  Any ideas?

assuming that you are using 2.1 (2.1.11?), I don't know how much updated is the link that you reported above.

I would suggest to start from the upload sample in the forms block (see [1]).
