      Check battery charge. It should be more than 50%, otherwise the command will not work. Charge your phone first and try

      Same happened with me bro, I was using the android theme of yureka plus, I suggest you to use Cyanogen (default) theme and customise it to look like an android one
      Then try Wipe Cache Partition
      My phone works well now… Except when I play games it lags, at the time
