Did you pump the pedal a few times. When you retract the calipers the pistons have to come out to contact the backing plate on the brake pad when you reinstall everything. You'll have no pedal until that happens.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Just to add: If pumped up on some older vehicles the master cylinder seals are travelling further in the bore than they have before and can tear them up as it can be crusty at the bottom hence no pedal feel. A maybe,
