distribution-and-changes-mismatch

The Distribution in the .changes file indicates that packages should be installed into one distribution (suite), but the distribution in the Changes field copied from debian/changelog indicates that a different distribution was intended.

This is an easy mistake to make when invoking "sbuild ... foo.dsc". Double-check the -d option if using sbuild in this way.

For more information please consult:
