I want to build a debian package with git build package.(gbp)
I passed all steps, and at least, when I entered
gbp buildpackage, This error appeared.
what does it mean? and what should I do?
gbp:error: upstream/1.5.13 is not a valid treeish
The current tag/branch you are in, is not a Debian source tree, it doesn't contain the
debian/ directory in its root. This is evident because you are using a "upstream/" branch, a name utilized to upload the pristine source tree to git repositories. Try using the branch stable, testing or unstable, or any branch that starts with Debian or a commit tagged using the Debian versioning scheme.
This can be caused by the tarball not being present in the parent directory. I get this (highly crypric) message even with a debian/ folder present.
My solution was to use uscan to get the watch file to download a fresh copy of the tarball
