    I can not get perf on freshly installed 22.04.2 LTS

    I have uname -r as 5.19.0-32-generic.
    I have tried to install linux-tools-5.19.0-32-generic, but that package does not exist.
    If I install linux-tools-common and linux-tools-generic, I get linux-tools-5.15.0-76 and linux-tools-5.15.0-76-generic, but when I run perf I get this output
    WARNING: perf not found for kernel 5.19.0-32

    You may need to install the following packages for this specific kernel:

    You may also want to install one of the following packages to keep up to date:
    The package linux-tools-5.19.0-32-generic that does not exist and linux-tools-generic was already installed.
    Does Ubuntu not keep perf up-to-date? Can I build it from source and get it to work?
    I found perf headers in ../../linux-hwe-5.19-headers-5.19.0-32/tools/perf I tried to make it, but
    BUILD: Doing 'make -j8' parallel build
    Makefile.perf:8: ../scripts/utilities.mak: No such file or directory
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target '../scripts/utilities.mak'. Stop.
    make: *** [Makefile:70: all] Error 2
    and yea, that target does not exist.
    Do I have to downgrade to get perf working?

    In, you wrote that you have installed Fedora instead and thus apparently no longer seek an answer to this question.
