I installed Dash on Ubuntu 16.04 using the steps below but after a few hours block count remains 0. Where did I go wrong?

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dash.org/dash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dashd dash-qt

mkdir .dash
cd .dash
vi dash.conf
############ dash.conf #################
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
alertnotify=echo %s | mail -s "DASH Alert" <[email protected]>
#############################

Code:
dashd -daemon

dash-cli getinfo

I changed the binary but I got this instead:

Looks like the daemon is not able to bind to the loopback device (127.0.0.1) - does your host have one?

I stopped and restarted dashd and it works (no error).
But the block count is still 0.
Btw, do I need those files in /include and /lib? As I only use /bin files from dashcore-0.12.2.3-linux64.tar.gz

Code:
{
  "version": 120203,
  "protocolversion": 70208,
  "walletversion": 61000,
  "balance": 0.00000000,
  "privatesend_balance": 0.00000000,
  "blocks": 0,
  "timeoffset": 0,
  "connections": 7,
  "proxy": "",
  "difficulty": 0.000244140625,
  "testnet": false,
  "keypoololdest": 1521129446,
  "keypoolsize": 999,
  "paytxfee": 0.00000000,
  "relayfee": 0.00001000,
  "errors": ""
}

You can also download an up to date copy of the Dash blockchain here: https://github.com/UdjinM6/dash-bootstrap
But recent improvements to the client and the current amount of masternodes means that it is actually just as fast to simply open the client and wait for sync, it happens quite fast.
