Basically you're system is missing needed development packages used to compile things. What pljvaldez provided was a means to download and install the packages you need.
sudo = allows a permitted user to execute a command as the superuser.
aptitude = text-based interface to the Debian GNU/Linux package system. It allows the user to view the list of packages and to perform package management tasks such as installing, upgrading, and removing packages.
install = aptitude option to install one or more packages
build-essential = name of the package to install.
