As an Ubuntu user, you probably have an older version. Please build
and test your packages in a Debian sid environment before uploading to
Debian to ensure that they work there and you have checked using the
latest lintian versoin. If you don't have a spare machine and don't
want to switch to sid, you can use a chroot or virtual machine.

Just change changelog and rename orig.tar.gz. mentors should deal with it.
