This is most likely to mean that your /etc/apt/sources.list is incomplete.

To save trouble and simplify matters, make sure you have source (deb-src)
and binary (deb) lines for all of main, restricted, universe, multiverse
and security, as well as updates.

If you are unsure, go to


and regenerate your sources list, then update again before running apt-get
build-dep etc.
