Cool Command 'blockMesh' not found

Hi, I am an absolute starter on Openfoam, and as I was going through OpenFOAM's Wiki learning path video, I was stuck when trying to create a mesh from one of the tutorial cases using the blockMesh command. I have been trying for hours but still could not figure it out what is causing this problem:

Code:
Command 'blockMesh' not found, but can be installed with:
sudo apt install openfoam
I am confused because the video from the tutorial did not go through any installation of a mesher, as he wrote the commands (which I did exactly like him) the mesh started to be generated.

Can someone help me to solve this problem?

Thankfully,
Gustavo

What Video did you watch? Did you source the OpenFOAM Environment?

I follow the video from OpenFoam's Wiki, from József Nagy.

Those are the steps that I took (in the picture). I am sorry, but what exactly it is to source OpenFoam?

Sorry i cannot help you further, because this is for the WSL. I use native Linux and have no experience with OpenFOAM and the WSL. But Mr Nagy explained how to source OpenFOAM in Chapter 7 of his Video (ca. 10:51 on). So far so good.
