The history at https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/sam2p is probably instructive.  It looks like the package was pulled from Debian’s Testing repository in 2016.  Although it appears that the Debian long term support project is uploading patches, it isn’t supported going forward.

A look at https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=sam2p shows that it hasn’t appeared downstream in Ubuntu since 16.04.  

The package could be reintroduced in Debian if somebody follows the appropriate processes.
