How to fix cannot find libgcc.a: No such file or directory error

I'm trying to make a standalone compile of the kernel for my android phone, using Google Toolchain, and have already tried Uber and linarc.

All of them give the same error, which I don't understand:

/home/aayushgupta219/kernel/toolchain64/bin/aarch64-linux-android-ld: cannot find libgcc.a: No such file or directory
/home/aayushgupta219/kernel/toolchain64/bin/aarch64-linux-android-ld: cannot find libgcc.a: No such file or directory
Makefile:814: recipe for target 'vmlinux' failed
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

OK. In case anyone is having same error and finding no fix here is my own fix for it. I was on Ubuntu 16.04 having gcc5 and was getting this error. I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.04 with gcc6 preinstalled and now no more such errors.
