All Lua related packages have been renamed using a more natural scheme,
hence the packages you are looking for are:


There is no Lua version number in the package name since packages (may)
ship the same library for multiple Lua versions. As you can see running:

  apt-cache show lua-socket lua-filesystem | egrep 'Package|Lua-Versions'

lua-filesystem ships the lfs module for Lua 5.1 and 5.2, while lua-socket
gives you the modules for Lua 5.1 only, for the reasons explained in
other replies.
