Hi Jan,

Licenses don't change by uploading packages to Debian, although if
there are incompatibilities or issues, sometimes we ask for upstream
to consider a licensing change [1] (even then we can't mandate
anything, the worst that can happen is that we can't carry the
software anymore, the owners of the software are all the time in
control). From the Wikipedia page of AGPL [2], that license is fine
for Debian main (the page itself points to a Debian bug [3] saying

At any rate, questions about licensing are better directed to debian-legal.

Good luck with your package!
