Compiler toolchain "C30" of type "C30" does not exist.

After a fresh install of MPLAB X:

Product Version: MPLAB X IDE v5.30
Java: 1.8.0_181; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.181-b13
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_181-b13
System: Linux version 5.4.18-1-MANJARO running on amd64; UTF-8; en_US (mplab)
 
And after Installation of the "C30" Compiler: xc16-v1.50-full-install-linux64-installer, the compiler shows up under Tools/options/Embedded as  /opt/microchip/xc16/v1.50/bin/xc16-gcc but when I try to clean and build a new blank template, I am getting the error message: 
 
Compiler toolchain "C30" of type "C30" does not exist. Please visit Tools/Options/Embedded to locate an installation of this toolchain or select another compiler toolchain.
 
Did I miss something?
 
Thanks a lot for your help!

    Are you sure that you are installing the C30  compiler? Your own posting shows that you have installed the XC16 compiler which, especially if you are starting out on a new project, is definitively the best one to use.

    I guess the OP is trying to compile an old C30 project they found somewhere, and they don't realise C30 is an old compiler that was replaced by XC16 years ago.
    They could try changing the compiler from "C30" to "XC16" in the project properties, but I imagine there's going to be a number of other fixups required as well.

    Thanks for all your answeres. 
     
    I found out what was wrong: I had selected the wrong MCU. After I picked the right one: dsPIC33EV256GM106, everything worked fine. If the Error Message would have been stated somthing like: "Compiler does not match selected MCU" It would have safed me a lot of time. O'well...

    Oh please no - don't ask these dumbheads to roll out a separate unique compiler for each MCU model they produce!

    After the MCU device is selected, only the toolchain that supports that device appears in MPLAB X.
