Which uses debian/changelog ... the ":" is used to indicate a "period",
period can be used to use smaller upstream version if you increased it by
error (or if you really need to use an older upstream version).

The period should be a single digit in most cases, and here you have a
period with dots in it.

Edit debian/changelog, and change the ":" by "+" and you're probably done.
