Can't reupload deleted package

Asked by Gijs Molenaar on 2018-05-15

I have a long-running PPA and a long time ago I deleted a package. I now want to re-upload it, but this is impossible. When I upload the message I get this message by e-mail:

Rejected:
File purr_1.3.1.orig.tar.gz already exists in KERN development, but the uploaded version has different contents. See more information about this error in https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/UploadErrors.
Files specified in DSC are broken or missing, skipping package unpack verification.

In the UploadErrors documentation is stated that I should download the original pristine tarball, but this is impossible since I deleted the package. There is no way I can recreate the package. What should I do? I've encountered this problem a couple of times now and I want to find a proper solution to fix this.
