The validator also gives a hint explaining its error message:

[[ Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a  
child element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is  
"not finished", not complete. For instance, <head> generally requires  
a <title>, lists (ul, ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and  
so on. ]]

<ul></ul> is not valid. it needs at least a <li></li> as child element.
