It looks to me like there's a file listen in debian/install (or
debian/foo.install) which isn't in the new upstream release. dh_install is
trying to copy it and it can't.

Or there's a cp command in your debian/rules which tries to copy that file, and
it can't as it doesn't exist.

Workaround: remove that line from debian/*install or debian/rules. (Note that I
don't know whether that file is important or not. Perhaps it got renamed.)
