MacOs Catalina and ESP8266

I recently downloaded the new Catalina update for my Mac computer and all of the sudden, I start having trouble with my arduino program, specifically with compiling and uploading to an ESP2866. When I try to compile or upload my code (even if there’s no actual code written) it gives me an error message. I suspect it’s the new update because I’ve read elsewhere that the new update no longer supports 32 bit, but unfortunately I have no idea because I only started using the ESP8266 after the update. I have updated my arduino program to the newest version as well as gone through the preferences and added the ESP8266 URL. I made sure the correct board was selected as well. If anyone could help me figure out why this is happening, it would be great. I am eager to continue working on my project!!
Thanks
