AFAICT a known issue in cairo 1.10.x, tracked for Inkscape in
- Bug #813886 “Save as EPS or PS incomplete with cairo >= 1.10”
In my tests the EPS file saves ok with cairo 1.8.10 and cairo 1.12.2,
but misses certain parts with cairo 1.10.2, independent of which
Inkscape version is used.

Based on your provided EPS file, Inkscape was using cairo 1.10.2 to
export to EPS:
%%Creator: cairo 1.10.2 (http://cairographics.org)

Which version of cairo was installed on that other system?

You didn't miss anything to be installed, nor is it a bug in newer
Inkscape versions. The problem is with cairo 1.10.x - independent of
which Inkscape version is used. Once linux distros have upgraded to the
current version of cairo (1.12.x), the problem will be gone.
