Installation Failure

Hi there. I am trying to install suricata 6.0.5 by following these steps:
and when I install the required dependencies, there’s an error said : unable to locate package libpcre3-dev libnet1-dev , so i continue installing it by deleting that package.
Do you guys have any idea how to fix this? Is there any packages that can change the “libpcre3-dev libnet1-dev” ?
