Can not program a10soc platform using OpenCL rte

I am trying to upgrade the rte for the a10soc board from 18.1 to 20.1 since the official does not provide the linux image for SDK v20.1 anymore.

When I tried to to reprogram the aocx file generated by v20.1 sdk the following Error shows:

I think the reason might be the full chip programming file "socfpga.rbf" is not compatible with v20.1 SDK, so I tried to regenerate the rbf file by following the instruction (Section 3.4) on porting guide v19.1 (again no updates for v20.1), when executing the command "aocl binedit .temp.fpga.bin get .acl.sof .temp.sof"  it shows that section ".acl.sof" cannot be found !

So I listed all the sections in the .temp.fpga.bin files get, I got this:

Sections in package file:
.acl.core.rbf, 96103060 bytes
.acl.hash, 10 bytes

So, it seems that the aocx file for new versions has changed, and it was not compatible with old rbf (I think linux driver still works).  How could I solve this problem  ??
