Major INDI Library release v1.9.0 bring significant internal changes championed by @pawel-soja to modernize core INDI Library drivers and clients. New drivers for DeepSkyDad Flat Panel & Pegasus devices plus further improvements to PCM8 drivers.
I have just rebuilt my OdroidXU4 and this new version of the QHY driver works wonderfully well.
Thank you for sorting this issue.

Looks like I am in the same boat as you. Both my PoleMaster and QHY5LII-C are throwing the [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) whenever EKOS requests a image to be taken. I can see the image being downloaded in QHY logs but the driver cancels the load.
Thank you for the good report. Here were my steps yesterday. I used Synaptic to see what QHY drivers and applications were installed. Then I removed any and all. After completion, I reinstalled indi-QHY. I will validate today what the state of both devices are in. Would you share any additional steps you took?
On a whim, I decided to check SYSLOG for any errors while testing my QHY devices with Polar Alignment and EKOS. I found the smoking gun. My error is in indi_qhy_ccd. The OS says using a USB before claiming it is the reason for the halt. I thought it strange for the QHY logs to yield an error when nothing previous to error indicated the need for an alert. Yes. The OS can stop KSTARS from operating.

This was a painful exercise. In EKOS profiles, Select Devices include 4 Auxiliary devices. In my decisions, I considered the three CCD devices as three separate uses. The ZWO for CCD, the PoleMaster for Polar Alignment, and the QHY5LII-C for guiding. Let me see... CCD and GUIDER are for ZWO and PoleMaster. The QHY5LII-C is Auxiliary 4.
Wrong! Just use INDI_QHY_CCD for Guiding and be done.
Setting up indi_QHY_CCD in two slots causes INDI to setup two instances of INDI_QHY_CCD. Having two instances of any driver causes multiple issues of communication. The error says that something is preventing the INDI_QHY_CCD driver from collecting the image. The Kernel is one such devices. The Kernel will say.

This stops that image process in its tracks. This closes the case for me.
PoleMaster and QHY5LII-C co-habitat under one instance of INDI_QHY_CCD. INDI_QHY_CCD resides in GUIDER or Auxiliary 4 but not both.
Perhaps a warning should popup whenever a profile is saved with duplicate drivers just to alert users of possible conflicts, without prohibiting it outright.
