Answer:
The Linux installation on your host is missing essential files that are needed to perform software development and use a C compiler. On Ubuntu, check for example if you miss a "libc6-dev" package. The specific package name differs from distribution to distribution; on Fedora, you need for example the "glibc-headers" package.

If you want to work with a Linux kernel you will probably also need other packages.
