Thanks, but dpkg-dev is already the newest version (I am using testing),
should I get it from unstable?

The original error message was:
Your request to upload your package could not be fulfilled.
Something feels wrong here... (section='-'). Please contact
opers@mentors.debian.net. ( 3ed03ada55f503d04ae4907867f694fb 512 -
optional libfann1_1.1.0-1.dsc)
Your files on the server have been removed from the incoming
directory. Please correct the error and redo your upload.

So I actually thinks that "an error occurs" is a step in the right
direction, but I agree ;-)
