In vi Up Arrow and Down Arrow is showing special charchters- Ubuntu

Problem: While using vi editor in ubuntu when i entered in to instert mode using i command. Using up and down arrows is showing special characters instead of navigating to up and down.

 Create a file named ".vimrc" under your home directory and add the content "set nocompatible".


mario@ubuntu:~$ touch .vimrc
mario@ubuntu:~$ pwd
mario@ubuntu:~$ echo "set nocompatible" > .vimrc
