Is it haram to break a fast that you’re making up for Ramadan?
While breaking optional fasts is permitted without issue, according to multiple fatwas it is not permitted to a break a fast that one is performing in place of an obligatory fast.
If a person breaks such a fast without having an excuse, they will have to make it up along with making up the original fast they intended to make up.

And God knows best.
