1. before you can build you have to "apt-get build-dep mediawiki" too. 
Do this and try it again.

2. remember you have to change the debian/changelog for the new version 
after copying the old debian directory into the new version.

3. If this still fails, try building it normally just to see if it will. 
  If so, it may give you a clue where you need to adjust the 
debian/rules file for differences in the versions.
