I have just upgraded ubuntu from 18.04 to 20.04. Whenever I try to connect my android, it just charges and nothing else. I have tried changing cables and trying with multiple android devices but still doesn't work.

  • Did you select "file transfer" (or something similar) in your Android device? Otherwise, by default it only charges. – Archisman Panigrahi Apr 25 at 8:58
  • I tried selecting other options as well, including "file transfer" and "transfer photos" – Atul Sinha Apr 25 at 9:30

This worked for me. Just typed this on terminal:

adb devices

It showed that daemon has started successfully and is able to read connected android devices.
