You may search for "MATLAB Support for the MinGW-w64 C/C++ Compiler" in the MATLAB Add-ons menu. You can then install the support package from the Add-on explorer.
More information on accessing the Add-ons menu can be found in the following link:

This error may be due to a corrupt installation of the MinGW compiler.
To solve this issue, please re-install MinGW:
and then set it as compiler from the MATLAB Command Window:
>> mex -setup
You should then be able to build a mex file:
To build a C MEX S-function instead, you can try with timestwo.c at the following link:
If the issue is not solved, there may be incompatibilities with other compilers that have the same command gcc (for instance, GFortran and EGCS).
Removing those compilers should solve the issue.
