master is the correct place for uploading the packages. The old
incoming directory has been soft-linked to point to
/org/ftp.debian.org/incoming. So you don't need to change the incoming
enrty in your dupload.conf. My incoming entry for master is set to:

incoming => "/home/Debian/ftp/private/project/Incoming/"

This may be the real problem. If I recall correctly, I think I had to
switch to scp a while ago, otherwise package upload was not
allowed. Put a 

method => "scpb"

entry in your $cfg{master} in dupload.conf. That ought to take care of
it. Before that, you might try ssh'ing to master.debian.org to verify
that your password does work.
