I'm experiencing this issue as well when I run adb on a newly installed Ubuntu 17.10 machine:

$ adb devices
List of devices attached
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
*** Error in `adb': free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x00005636faaac170 ***
ADB server didn't ACK
* failed to start daemon *
error: cannot connect to daemon

This affects me on 17.10, but not 16.04.

This persists in 18.04...

It may be to do with an error in the invocation, as after calling instead with a hyphen...

cefn@cefn-dell-bionic:~$ adb reboot-bootloader
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
error: no devices/emulators found

Another 'Me Too' here on 17.10. Are there any workarounds for this?

I just got the same error. It went away after I rebooted my machine.

Can confirm a reboot fixed mine as well. Ubuntu 18.04, after installing 'adb'.

+1 confirmed, rebooting fixed it. I noticed that in one of the errors that popped up also. I think it was Android Studio or a system error, but it said 'if problems persist, try rebooting your machine'.

I would recommend, in your terminal:

shutdown -r 0

-r 0 means restart in 0 seconds from now, aka right now.
