You also need to update the branch in the Vcs-Git URL in the control 

  Vcs-Git: https://salsa.debian.org/nagios-team/pkg-icinga2.git -b 

  Vcs-Git: https://salsa.debian.org/nagios-team/pkg-icingaweb2.git -b

I have no experience with dgit, and AFAIK no one in the team uses it 

Hence I would prefer if you used git-buildpackage and dput.
