The error I receive is from the VMWare Kernal Module UPdater. The error:

Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.


GNU C Compiler (gcc) version 9.3.0 was not found. If you installed it in a non-default path you can specify the path below. Otherwise refer to your distrubution's documentation for installation instructors and click Refresh to search again in default locations.

gcc --version returns

gcc (Ubuntu 9.3.0-10ubuntu2) 9.3.0

whereis gcc returns

gcc: /usr/bin/gcc /usr/lib/gcc /usr/share/man/man1/gcc.1.gz

When I attempt to point the VMWare Kernal Module Updater to the location /usr/bin/gcc or /usr/lib/gcc, still doesn't find it.

I have gcc, gcc-7, gcc-9, gcc-ar, gcc-ar-7, gcc-ar-9, gcc-nm, gcc-nm-7, gcc-nm-9 gcc-ranlib, gcc-ranlib-7, gcc-ranlib-9 all of which have lrwxrwxrwx permissions (so they're executable). the gc and gcore folder are -rwxr-xr-x

How can I fix this?
