Im trying to create a micro SD card with Ubuntu mate and trying to follow these steps.

http://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/

My lsblk command throws this following output -

lsblk

NAME           MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
sda              8:0    0   477G  0 disk

└─sda6           8:6    0 211.6G  0 part  /

└─mmcblk0p1    179:1    0  29.7G  0 part  /media/prem/3163-6330

what should my ddrescue command be - should it be /dev/mmcblk0?

sudo ddrescue -D --force ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img /dev/sdx

Following the Tutorial from your Link (It is also shown in the video)

The microSDHC may be presented on any /dev/sdX so use the command lsblk to check.

Just use the Device name and not the partition. So just

/dev/mmcblk0
