The problem is that you have an out-of-date version of lintian. :-)

        lintian (2.2.7) unstable; urgency=low
          The "debhelper 7.2.3 and lots of fiddly infrastructure fixes" release.

(on a related subject, note that lintian 2.2.8 will revert some of the
debhelper 7.2.3 changes to the menu handling, to match changes in
debhelper 7.2.5)
