It does not mean that - it's showing the layer boundary, but there
might still be a selection.

Check also in tool options you do't have Registered selected.
At the bottom right of Tool Options for teh clone tool is a Reset icon
you can press, see if that helps.
You can also check you have not clicked on anything in Channels - all 3
(or 4) channels should be selected. Channels is under Windows/dockable
You can also right-click the layer and check its properties.
Under Switches, only Visible should be checked, and the two Coomposite
items should both be set to Auto.
Mode should be Normal but i think you already showed that was the case.
Also, if the image is in Indexed mode, use Image/Mode to change it t
Also make sure you do not have caps lock pressed.
To compile gimp yourself you will need its dependencies - a recent
enough version of gtk+ in partcular, as well as gegl and babl and
mypaint, the last 3 installed into a custom prefix such as ~/opt/ to
avoid breakage with the system one.
https://wiki.gimp.org/wiki/Hacking:Building has an overview, you'll
need to check out the 2.10 branch though,
git checkout 2.10
after the git clone and before doing anything else.
