After a succesfull install of 2.8 and update to 2.8.2, I require to compile a file, but 'Build Essential' is missing!
After typing my usual:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
I get 'E: Unable to locate package build-essential'

So I type:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install build-essential

But still I get    'E: Unable to locate package build-essential'

Any suggestions ?

I guess your sources.list is not complete.
show your version and sources.list. 
lsb_release -a
sudo cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Hi all

I have the same issue.

I am running Debian 10 BUster and my source.list is at follows:

deb-src cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 10 _Buster_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20201002-19:09]/ buster contrib main non-free

deb security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free

deb deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates non-free contrib main
deb-src deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates non-free contrib main

I have not so much experience on this OS, so I don't know is it something missing.

Thank you for your answer

Once I type the command  the response is  "Unable to locate package build-essential'"

I tried to follow the steps but it seems there is something missing. Commands like  Make, lspci...etc do not work.

My issue is about installing a pci parallel board. I was not able to follow the manufacturer's instructions for installing drivers ( i need to use  "make" for that). So I decided to downgrade de LinuxCNC version from 2.8 to 2.7, run lspci command to know the ports used and then, modify the .hal file.

Now the machine is working

Did you at any point in time do:
sudo apt-get update
It is a good practice to do that before trying to install anything on Linux to update the repositories (databases where Linux software is stored).
