Before you start yelling at me I’ve been reading posts for an hour and I followed the troubleshooting link to the manual.
I have an old Arduino R3 with Atmega 328P-PU that I’ve been trying to upload to. It’s old. Maybe a decade old? Older? I"m not sure. It’s so old that the email address I had 25 years ago was the login email that I tried to receive my password with. Needless to say that didn’t work and that’s why I am
I can read the board via Com 3:
BN: Arduino/Genuino Uno
When I plug it in, the software recognizes the Com port - 3
Here’s the error message:

avrdude done. Thank you.
Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.
This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File → Preferences.
The error looks very similar to what other people are seeing. I’ve seen suggestions to change the processor in the software to Atmega328P (old bootloader). That’s not a selection in my version (1.8.12).
I’m tempted to dump the bootloader in. If that doesn’t work I have new 328P’s that I can swap in and burn the bootloader to it. I’d rather not do that if I can keep from it.
I almost forgot - I also have new Arduino Uno’s. When I plugged one of them in the Com port changed to 6. I was able to upload to it and it’s currently running the NeoPixel Shield code I uploaded to it.
