I’d love to help you with that, I tried to debug the example: Onboard_blink, at the beginning I had the same error when I tried to debug it. So, I removed xdk-daemon and I installed again, so try to follow the next steps:
1. Close Intel® XDK.
2. In the Edison serial terminal (I normally use PuTTY), update AlexT repository and MRAA (Install MRAA 1.4.0).
3. If you install xdk-daemon it should say that it is already installed, so tried to run the following command: opkg remove xdk-daemon
4. Install it again with the command: opkg install xdk-daemon
5. Open XDK and try to debug again.
It worked to me, so I recommend you to do the same.
Let me know if it works for you.
