Having trouble using SSD1306_128x32_i2c example in OLED

I am trying to learn how to use Display with Arduino.
I am using OLED from Amazon and Arduino UNO.
I am using Arduino 2:1.0.5+dfsg2-4.1 IDE for Raspberry Pi with OS: Raspbian 10 buster & Kernel: armv7l Linux 5.10.11-v7+
I am using SSD1306, Adafruit GFX Library & Adafruit_BusIO.
For now I just want to see if the display works so I am using the Example ssd1306_128x32_i2c. When I try to verify the provied default example i am provided the errors below:

In file included from /home/pi/sketchbook/libraries/Adafruit_GFX/Adafruit_GrayOLED.cpp:20:0:
/home/pi/sketchbook/libraries/Adafruit_GFX/Adafruit_GrayOLED.h:30:32: fatal error: Adafruit_I2CDevice.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.


So I added the following header files from the BusIO
#include <Adafruit_I2CDevice.h>
#include <Adafruit_BusIO_Register.h>
#include <Adafruit_SPIDevice.h>
#include <Adafruit_I2CRegister.h>

then I get these error

In file included from /home/pi/sketchbook/libraries/Adafruit_BusIO/Adafruit_BusIO_Register.h:2:0,
from ssd1306_128x32_i2c.ino:2:
/home/pi/sketchbook/libraries/Adafruit_BusIO/Adafruit_SPIDevice.h:86:3: error: ‘SPISettings’ does not name a type
SPISettings *_spiSetting;

I am confused as to why it using the SPI when I am using a I2C

Can anyone helpme to just test the display for this OLED. I just need it to display texts for now.

Seems that it was because I was using very old IDE.
manually installed the latest 1.8x version and it worked like a charm.
Funny thing that the Raspberry Pi Repository has such old version.
Well learned to always check that you have the latest software version from the approprite party.
