1.  A Transportable Tablespace (TTS) export failed with the error "ORA-29341: The transportable set is not self-contained."  

2.  The reason was found by running this command:

EXEC DBMS_TTS.TRANSPORT_SET_CHECK('<new tablespace name>',TRUE);

3.  The result was "<table_name> Master table used for snapshots/replication not allowed in pluggable set."

4.  The table was newly created and not associated with any materialized view; it also was not partitioned.
