I would suggest using an MinGW64 based GCC compiler instead of an MinGW32 (mingw.org) based GCC compiler.

Or, you can try copying headers; but, that sometimes results in a compiler that has random-like errors.

I use the MSys2 MinGW64 GCC which is not really something I would recommend for a newbie to use.
Maybe someone else can recommend a good url for an easy to use Mingw64 installer.

Simply use the rolling online installer from https://mingw-w64.org/doku.php/download/mingw-builds, this is only small (~1 MB) because it downloads everything it needs. You will end up with a directory that contains the full toolchain, you just need to point CodeBlocks to it to use it.
