You are trying to build a non-native package but your branch doesn't contain a tag for the upstream tarball. bzr-builder needs this tag so it can create an .orig.tar.gz file.

You should either:

 * create a tag for the upstream version named upstream-201109191120
 * change the package to be a native package
 * allow bzr-builder to make the package a native package by building with --allow-fallback-to-native.

The third option worked. I'll check the other when needed :)
Thank You!
