master is not the correct place to upload packages.  If you would read
the motd when you login to master you will get the following:

Uploads go to ftp-master.debian.org, not here.

   or use an upload queue.

Change your dupload.conf the correct directory to upload to is

Also it is not wise to upload via ftp, as it send your password as
plain text.  Auric (ftp-master) does have a ftpd running, but the best
method is to use scp instead.
