Erm, not exactly.  The wording is a little weird, but what it's saying
is that it was not expecting the tarfile to contain the directory
adduser-2.11 (Since the version is 2.13, it expects adduser-2.13). Try
untarring it by hand and seeing if that is the case.

If that's the case, the bug is with the adduser 2.13 source package.
