How do you install and solve the configure step from source in grid db?

I am running Ubuntu 18 and the error following installation instructions persists

top@DESKTOP-JUACTCP:~/griddb$   sudo ./configure checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $  (MAKE)... no checking whether make supports nested variables... no checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no checking for cl.exe... no configure: error: in `/home/top/griddb': configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $  PATH See `config.log' for more details
