I am running a live debian as a guest OS in VMM.

$ sudo apt install spice-vdagent
E: unable to locate package spice-vdagent

Do I need to add some repository first?

The repository configuration contains:

user@debian:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/base.list
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main
#deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main

In the live images, there are no repository indexes in the base image, so you need to update first:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install spice-vdagent
