[graph-tool] Graph-tool configure error: Boost::Iostreams library is available but no usable boost::iostreams is found

Assuming you installed boost yourself cf.
after running bootstrap.sh, you would run

    ./b2 install

This is not enough for graph-tool, and to install iostreams as well, you
would run

    ./b2 install --with-iostreams

When installing graph-tool on CentOS 7, after this I also had to install
--with-coroutine, and a few more (which I do not remember).

The above answer is somewhat generic, but seeing that you use Ubuntu, it
may be that your package manager allows you to do this more easily, for
example using a command like

    sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

Good luck!
