I am trying to backport texlive-extra for 12.04 and upload the result to my PPA on launchpad. So I executed backportpackage -u ppa:asolovets/backports texlive-extra. It starts downloading the source tarball, but then stops after reaching 99%. It happens every time I run the command. I successfully backported some other packages the same way before, so what's wrong with this one?

$ backportpackage -u ppa:asolovets/backports texlive-extra
backportpackage: Downloading texlive-extra_2013.20140408.orig.tar.xz from archive.ubuntu.com (871.264 MiB) <br/>
