KCoreAddons

sudo apt-get install libkf5coreaddons-bin-dev

You might be prompted to install a few other modules. You can refer to the list of all Qt5 development packages available on Ubuntu.

Some of them are listed here-

Other methods to build Ruqola-

Using craft-

Craft is a tool to build the sources and its third-party requirements. It is the easy way to build software. For more details, refer KDE HOWTOs.

(Thanks to Hannah von Reth(vonreth@kde.org) for suggesting this way πŸ™‚ )

On KDE neon –

You can also use neon developer unstable edition package using the following command-

neondocker.rb -e dev-unstable -a ruqola

For details, refer Neon docker documentation.

(Thanks to Jonathan Riddell (jr@jriddell.org) for this πŸ™‚ )
