So this is my first time using an Arduino and I got this model as a recommendation from a professor for the project I am doing. I am running my first test on it (the whole turn on the LED on pin 13 thing from Paul McWhorter's video) and it won't upload to the Arduino. I have it set to the right board type (Arduino Nano), I have it set to the correct port, I have tried using the old bootloader, I have tried using a different USB port on my computer, I am using a data USB cable and not a charging cable, I have tried loading the .ino file directly or opening the coding software and opening the program by open > program. I have tried every solution I have found on the internet and it still will not upload anything to this Arduino. PLEASE help me!! I will past the verbose output upload below.
