Uhmmmm, I've never read that and I'm using pbuilder for >10 years.  It
does not make any sense at all.

Saira, I guess it is because you do not have an upstream tarball. I am getting a similar error with sbuild:

dpkg-source: error: can't build with source format '3.0 (quilt)': no upstream tarball found at ../<your_package>.orig.tar.{bz2,gz,lzma,xz}

I have just tested: deleting d/source/format really makes possible to build the package without upstream tarball O_o But, of course, this is not a proper way.

To regenerate upstream tarball, I am using these commands:
$ pristine-tar list
$ pristine-tar checkout ../<tarball>

Let me know if it helps!
