Tried troubleshooting this off the web but I'm out of ideas. I have a project with a custom PCB and an ATMeaga328P-AU on it. I have not been able to burn the bootloader no matter what I try. I keep getting the error below. In order to try and isolate the problem I tried using the same NANO as an ISP as I was before to update the bootloader of another arduino NANO, same issue. I then tried a different Arduino as the programmer, same result. I've tried two different computers with different revisions of the Arduino IDE on them and one of them running linux. I even tried loading a bootloader to a bare bones ATTiny85 which I know I've done before for other projects. I have no idea what is causing the problems I see. The connections are solid I, physically checked them and changed breadboards I was using just to be sure.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
