Ok, I just updated to 5.1.28. And my Ubuntu version is already 16.04.
Let me try again if it works.
Thanks all for your reply.
BTW, I am more interested in my another query about QEMU arm.
This will be much quicker and easy for me.
But the problem is I wanted to use multiple ssh shell on qemu.
Also I needed a pre-built rootfs image for qemu-arm, cortex-a9
It should have networking and ssh built-in so that I can connect to it
