What I always do is not just "sdist upload", but "sdist upload 
register". I think the "register" step is what you're missing.

Initially, you *need* to use register to get the package registered (and 
created) on pypi, afterwards you can upload. In my experience, sometimes 
you need to call the command twice: the first call registers the package 
but fails in the upload, the second call's upload succeeds.

After that, everything is rosy.
