lucid, breezy, and jaunty are all thoroughly obsolete Ubuntu releases
(breezy went out of support in 2007!), and main and ubuntu are the wrong
category to put in that field.

You can find the list of Ubuntu releases on
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases; you want the first word of the code
name, in lower case.  Which to use depends on which Ubuntu releases you
want to build your packages for.
