Your command to compile is not complete. It is missing the name of the output file.
Code:
gcc -c try.c -o try
Try that. Does the error occur again?

The -c option doesn't run the link phase so -o try wouldn't be used.

Which distro do you use? Maybe you need to validate your gcc package.
What does "file $(which gcc)" say? Usually it will be something like /usr/bin/gcc-<version>. I'm wondering if you have a wrapper instead.

Also look at your aliases.

I got the same problem, I run Ubuntu 7.10, file $(which gcc) tells me that the gcc is 4.1. I tried to reinstall the gcc from CD, still the same error. What has gone wrong? Does anyone know ? Thanks in advance.

actually in my case my assembler was overwritten with some other assembler
so i got assembler error
its not gcc error
so check using command
$ which as
$which gcc
OR
$as -v OR $as -version
$gcc -v or gcc -version
then see if they match or not
in my case they didnt match so my prob got solved by using right assembler
