For whatever reason, Amazon thinks the UPC is 1005821392 (without the last 
digit). Searching amazon.de with that value gives a successful result.

However, from my reading, a UPC value in the US should probably 12 digits. 
An EAN value in Europe should be 13 digits. None of the formats I looked at 
have 11 digits, like the value you had. Can you verify your UPC value?
