What makes you say that?  I checked our logs and our system sent you
several rejection messages, all of which say:

  The source libhtml-wikiconverter-markdown-perl -
  0.06-1~ubuntu14.04.1~ppa1 is already accepted in ubuntu/trusty and you
  cannot upload the same version within the same distribution. You have
  to modify the source version and re-upload.

indicates that you'd previously uploaded that same version and later
deleted it.  You can't reuse the same version within the same archive,
even if it's been deleted.

I suggest adding these arguments to your backportpackage command to work
around this in this case:

  -S '~ppa2'
