Before the operation the rear was fine, but I figured I might as well swap the line out since they're probably 30 years old, but after installing and bleeding the rear, it has no pressure. I bled the system for what seemed like hours, but no pressure builds, even once the air bubbles are all gone. I don't mean it is spungy, it is like I have no brakes! With the bleeder closed I have no leaks that I can see.

I am sure I did something stupid. Help me out here!

What does this mean: "...swap the line out."?
