Question Problem with installation of driver of DisplayLink Adapter

Hello everyone,

I use a raspberry pi 3 with ubuntu mate 16.04 LTS installed on it. I download the driver at this url:

Ubuntu Driver Download

And follow the process here:

How to install DisplayLink on Ubuntu

But I launch the .run file I have this error message:
root@raspi-desktop:~/Téléchargements/DisplayLink-USB-Graphics-Software# sudo ./displaylink-driver-4.2.29.run 
Verifying archive integrity...  100%   All good.
Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 4.2.29  100%  
DisplayLink Linux Software 4.2.29 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Linux headers for running kernel, 4.4.38-v7+.
This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.
I try this code resolve the Linux Headers issue but impossible to find the package:
root@raspi-desktop:~/Téléchargements/DisplayLink-USB-Graphics-Software# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Lecture des listes de paquets... Fait

E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'linux-headers-4.4.38-v7'
E: Impossible de trouver de paquet correspondant ŕ l'expression rationnelle «*linux-headers-4.4.38-v7*»
Do you know how to resolve that ?
