    Please can you edit your question and insert the output as text and not as a screen shot image? I can't read it. How is your laptop connected to the raspi? Ethernet? Wifi? – Ingo Apr 10 '18 at 19:34
  • step 1 - verify IP address of the raspberry pi – Jaromanda X Apr 11 '18 at 2:02

Sometimes your hostname and IP are not in up-to-date. try connecting via the RPi IP address instead of its hostname. If that works, then you know the problem (or better, you know the Pi is not the problem). If it does not work, you'll have to dig deeper. Is ssh enabled? By default, a fresh install has ssh disabled and you have to enable yourself.

To enable it you can either run sudo raspi-config, or, if you still have the sd mounter on your OS (the one you used to copy the image to the sd), you can create an empty file in the boot partition of the sd, named 'ssh', and that's it.
