Why not use the Synaptic package manager GUI? Mis-spellings are much less likely...

it's supposed to be build-essential. my internet is too slow for me to install synaptic package manager using the internet. so is it build-essential or build-essentials?


You were close:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
