I note you have the following in your changes file:

vuemyadmin (1.0.1) xenial; urgency=low
  * Initial release day
  -- Mohamed Tebry  Date Fri, 20 Sep 2019 01:15:33 -0700> 

which is curious to me because the timestamp and signature should not be in there. There's also some formatting issues with that particular line. My guess is that you "wrote into the changelog," as you said, meaning you manually edited debian/changelog rather than using `dch`. This led to the bad formatting, which led to `dpkg-genchanges` struggling to parse it correctly and producing a malformed changes file in turn.
