Well, it *should* work with a standard Debian kernel and applicable
hardware.

​The output of lspci is here:

Your "No such device" error sounds like it probed for hardware and didn't
find any.  If the module itself were missing from the file system, then
I would have expected "FATAL: Module coretemp not found in directory ...".

It says "Intel" in the description.  Are you using an Intel CPU?
