This is not an answer -- and I normally post these as comments -- but: why are you building everything from source?

If you're on a supported platform: always prefer to use the binary packages provided by the ROS buildfarm to install ROS packages. So on Ubuntu and Debian: use apt. Only ever build things from source if it's absolutely necessary (ie: there are no binary packages available, the packages available don't contain some fix you absolutely need, etc).

As to ros_comm: that is a metapackage that groups a number of core ROS packages like roscpp, rospy and others. All ROS installation variants already install those on your system, so there would be no need to build them yourself again.

For .bag files specifically: rosbag is also installed by default, you shouldn't need to install anything for that either.

Refer to wiki/rosbag for some information on how to use it (summary: rosbag play /path/to/your/bag/file.bag).

Edit: I just noticed that you also posted #q323685. Are you still using ROSonWindows?

ROSonWindows or WSL?
