I am installing Oracle 11g 32bit on Ubuntu Linux and the setup shows the following error message on Prerequisite Checks screen:

This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the package "make-3.80" is available on the system. (more details)
Expected Value
 : make-3.80
Actual Value
 : missing

On the commandline when I run sudo apt-get install make I get:

make is already the newest version.

There are lot of other dependencies that setup is not able to find. Why can't it find them?
