 You can also follow the tutorial here: http://bit.ly/2lWjFlj, and I strongly recommend you to follow the steps there. Below, I will point out the main step you have to note, from the above tutorial, for a successful installation, and that step is Step 4 which reads as follows:

"Now we come to the interesting part, which cost me 2 weeks of (futile) research and frustration. Finally I found Sergio Riveros tutorial on mibqyyo. Thanks to him again and again and again for this priceless piece of information.

Quote:
"The 'modemmanager' package integrated by default within Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and later is not compatible with the MTK Flash Tool for Linux."

To put it in different words: The modem manager controls port /dev/ttyACM0 and disables the Flash Tool. So we blacklist it for the two MTK vendor IDs the flash tool uses:
 sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/20-mm-blacklist-mtk.rules  
You insert these two lines:
 ATTRS{idVendor}=="0e8d", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"  
 ATTRS{idVendor}=="6000", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"  
Save the file, exit and restart udev:
 sudo service udev restart  
Switch your phone on (fastboot mode will suffice) and off again."
