Oops, you got the wrong sucrose.

sucrose is not distributed on pypi, i.e, PIP. On ubuntu 18.04, the 
suggested method is to build sugar development environment, I guess you 
missed that part;

The latest version of sugar repository is not available on Bionic Beaver 
(18.04). See https://pkgs.org/search/?q=sucrose; So that means you have 
to build it, to make it work!

But, its simple, but make sure you follow all the instructions 
carefully; in case you miss one step, the rest of them goes awry.


Let me know if you face any issues in between the steps
