Difficulties to connect to access an Android phone from Kubuntu 16.04

Hello Everbody.

At earlier versions of Kubuntu, I could quite easily access the SD card and
internal memory in my Android phones. I connected a USB cable in between
the phone and laptop and the phone showed up as a "mass storage" device,
after which I could easily transfer files between either devices.

However, ever since let's say Kubuntu 14.04 it's getting more and more
complicated. Kubuntu 16.04 is even worse in this context.
One error message that often comes back sounds something like "mtp protocol
died unexpectedly.  Today, I got this error message:

*Internal Error*

*Please send a full bug report at http://bugs.kde.org <http://bugs.kde.org>*

*No such object path '/modules/kdeconnect/devices/ed509789b5640fb9/sftp'*

Also this one shows up from time to time....

The only way out I have found so far is taking out the SD card of the
phone, putting it in a bigger SD card case or into some USB device, after
which I can access the card. However, this is a bit troublesome.

Any clue how to solve these problems?
