    Head over to VMWare Workstation 16 Player Download:

    In this case, we downloaded “VMware-Player-16.1.0-17198959.x86_64.bundle”, now open up the terminal and use the following commands:

    sudo apt install gcc build-essential
    cd /home/plex/Downloads
    chmod u+x VMware-Player-16.1.0-17198959.x86_64.bundle
    sudo ./VMware-Player-16.1.0-17198959.x86_64.bundle

    After upgrading the Linux kernel to 5.10, you will have to update to GCC 10.2 in order to use VMPlayer. To do this we need to add a few repositories…

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gcc g++ gcc-5 g++-5 gcc-6 g++-6 gcc-7 g++-7
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/ppa
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install g++-10
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
