Since I am using YUM I am guessing here, but I assume that apt works the 
same way.
Source rpms do not "provide" anything so they can't be gotten using apt, 
yum or the like.
Log on to the repository and determine the URL of the srpm and then 
download and install using rpm itself. That is what I do.
