Another avrdude error

Hey guys, very new to arduino and anything electronics related in general, I uploaded code to my arduini uno with no worries, tried to upload a different code after and got the avrdude error. The right board is selected, right port is selected, right programmer is selected, ive tried 3 different cables, pressed the reset button, restarted pc, disabled firewall and still no cigar. Just wondering if maybe theres something I missed? confused as to why it uploaded fine and then just changed its mind 10 mins later (burning bootloader is all I can think of but its a bit outside my realm at the moment). Cheers guys!

This is the error message im getting

Arduino: 1.8.15 (Windows Store 1.8.49.0) (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino Uno"

Problem uploading to board.  


Uninstall the Microsoft store version, and install the version downloaded from this site.

Also, make sure you have nothing plugged into pins 0 or 1.

The uploader (avrdude) is sending commands to the bootloader on your Arduino UNO and stops receiving replies. The fact that it receives the signature data is a good sign.

Is there anything connected to the UNO other than the USB cable?

sorry for late reply, the board was a hand me down and was told only after that previous owner also had the same issue (maybe faulty?) , got a new board and works fine now! Thanks for the reply.
