I think I am hitting the nail on the head with this answer.

A partition of a set is a collection of subsets that might be said to
"divide the set into pieces". And an empty set occurs when you union 2
sets that have no common elements, Therefore, if they have no common
elements they have no subsets, and no sub sets meants no collections
of subsets and thus no partitions.
