Unable to run quickemu - audiodev invalid option error

Hi, I'm trying to run quickemu as per the (excellent, if I may add) guide by @Norbert_X.

When I run the command, I get some 'audiodev invalid option' error. Error msg given below.

Starting ../umate.conf

qemu-system-x86_64: -audiodev: invalid option

My current conf file is below.

boot="efi"
guest_os="linux"
iso="/home/sai/Downloads/ISOs/UMate/hirsute-desktop-amd64.iso"
disk_img="/home/sai/Downloads/ISOs/hirsute-desktop-amd64.qcow2"
disk=15G
port_forwards=("8123:8123" "8888:80")

I changed boot option from efi to legacy but no luck.

Following is my system specs.

What could be the issue? If you need any other logs/command outputs, please let me know.

For me it seems that yours qemu-virgil * v3.0.50* is outdated.

Try to upgrade it to the newest 4.2.0 version by

snap refresh
snap install qemu-virgil --edge

and retry.

On my Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS I have qemu-virgil at version 4.2.0 and it works normally.
