No such package 'slim': BUILD file not found - Tensorflow

Currently trying to run Google's research, I come into the error below when following the instructions provided. Instruction on Github - Mint Linux system with Anaconda/Tensorflow download. This is the second step in "Getting the Datasets"

~/test/models/research $ bazel run domain_adaptation/datasets:download_and_convert_mnist_m -- --dataset_dir $DSN_DATA_DIR
ERROR: /home/.../models/research/domain_adaptation/datasets/BUILD:29:1: no such package 'slim': BUILD file not found on package path and referenced by '//research/domain_adaptation/datasets:download_and_convert_mnist_m'
