FWIW, this is a known issue. The credentials to download packages from ESM
are stored in a 0600 root:root file, so normal non-root users cannot read
them, which means the apt-get source command must be run as root. I'm
pretty sure there is a bug about this already, still open. My suggestion
would be for people affected by this to create a group and chmod 0640
root:<group> that file, if they want non-root users to download ESM source
