I'm not quite sure that I'm right but I would like to know. I had a
similar experience but I didn't bother much because it was a local package
only. I suspected that dpkg-buildpackage had missed the original source
because it wasn't named correctly and I didn't specify one explicitly. So
dpkg-buildpackage assumed there was no upstream version and of course
could not generate diffs against that.
