[ubuntu] What went wrong during this application installation?

I recently installed a new application (https://yade-dem.org/doc/installation.html) for graduate school research and followed the instructions in the link. I thought everything was ready to launch, typed the command into my Ubuntu command line and received the following error:

[email protected]QIQTVM:~/yade$ yade
Welcome to Yade 2020.01a
Using python version: 3.8.2 (default, Jul 16 2020, 14:00:26)
[GCC 9.3.0]
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/yade”, line 144, in
import yade
File “/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/yade/py/yade/__init__.py”, line 75, in
from yade import boot
ImportError: libQt5Core.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I’m new to Ubuntu, but I do recognize I could have established a hierarchy in my home directory for this new application. I was planning on establishing this new directory after I launched this application for a future work space. Is the lack of such a directory the reason why this app failed to launch? I’m not sure why this certain #libQt5Core.so.5# cannot be found otherwise.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!
