You should install these packages using your distribution's package
manager.  They are probably not installed by default.  Please refer to
your distribution's documentation for additional information on package

It looked like DistroAstro is an Ubuntu derivative, so I'm guessing you
can use apt-get and the "Ubuntu" package names listed on the MESA SDK
