can't compile and upload to my UNO, getting busy signal

hello, my name is Fritz and I am new to coding and adruino.
I am taking a online course (you Tube)from PaulMcWorther and all worked well till this morning.
This morning, I tried to upload a sketch onto my UNO and it hangs up. The message is "BUSY"
I checked on the debug screen and the print out is below.

I am not to good in computer stuff, so any help is apriciated.

thank you

I am having the same problem as Fritz on the Web Editor on a Mac with OS 10.15.4 and on window 10.

  • The editor connects to the genuine Arduino Mega and shows a healthy connection (no "x")
  • The same Busy is shown with anArduino Uno as well.
  • It completes the save and the compile phase, but stays on "Busy" (multiple tries >10 minutes.
    -I have been using the Web Editor on the Mac successfully for maybe a month until today.

Mac Debug:

Windows 10 Debug:

I uninstalled Adruino and reinstalled, still same problem.
I removed USB and installed again. Still same problem.
When starting create adruino and coding, it shows that USB4 is active.
When uploading and Busy sign is on, the green light, LED pin13 is glowing and TX LED is glowing.
I have no other windows computer, to test if it is my Laptop.

There are some posts at the top of this section.
They may provide you with some things to try first.

Adding as much detail as you can also increases your chances of a an answer.

It will help you get the best out of the forum in the future.

I received a notice this morning that (It appeared and disappeared before I could capture it.) there was a “server issue” and "compiling was , something like, suspended or unavailable.

I tried it later and it compiled and uploaded successfully.

I greatly appreciate the huge effort made by Arduino and all to maintain such a useful system.

All the best,
