It seems that you didn't pass the "-S" flag to dpkg-buildpackage, as
explained on the main extras-assistant page. You need to create a
"source only" source package. In summary, use this command to generate
your sources for upload:

dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot -S -sa

and make sure you upload the "..._source.changes" file, not other
_<arch>.changes file that might have create in previous builds.

PS: I think it would be nice that the extras-assistant checked for
this mistake (trying to upload a .changes file for a non source-only
build). I once had the same problem and it took me some time to figure
that out.
