Everything seems to build just fine and when I run pbuilder-dist my changes file becomes unsigned and I have to resign it before uploading to my ppa. Should I just build it then upload it to my ppa and not run pbuilder-dist. I have followed the packaging guide for packaging new software but I keep running into this snag.

You need to put "zesty" in debian/changelog, not "Zesty Zapus".

Getting same issue here, except I used "released"

I'm on revision 1.0.5 of a beta.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #7

Jacob, you need to use an Ubuntu series name (trusty, xenial, zesty, artful, or bionic), not "released".

Can you help with this problem?
