Launchpad doesn't accept binary uploads. You need to upload a source
package, and Launchpad will build the binary .debs itself. See
https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA/BuildingASourcePackage for details.

Additionally, that deb is weird -- there shouldn't be anything named
_gpgbuilder in the top level.
