A file is not valid UTF-8.

Debian has used UTF-8 for many years. Support for national encodings is being phased out. This file probably appears to users in mangled characters (also called mojibake).

Packaging control files must be encoded in valid UTF-8.

Please convert the file to UTF-8 using iconv or a similar tool.
