I don't remember which repo that you said that you were using.
If you have a "Software Sources" app in your menu under Administration
(if you're using a graphical environment) or something similar, start
that and enable "Source code repositories" or whatever seems similar.
Alternatively, you might be looking for some commented out entry in a
file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d or /etc/apt/sources.list containing
"deb-src". Uncomment that and do:
sudo apt-get update
How you might do this really depends on the distro setup.
Then you should be able to run the build-dep.
