That means the package existed before and was deleted. We still keep the
git tree even if the package was removed from the web interface (you can
see it here as well: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/?h=elster).

Clone the existing git tree, do your modifications, commit and then
push. This will restore the package with you as maintainer.
