But there are no sources there, here is part of my sources.list
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
deb http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

See the difference, mine has 'deb-src' and yours hasn't, and thats what it is
asking for.
