Nothing is ever easy for me, my wife says. I have searched the similar topics, and all seems to have resolutions that aren’t applicable to me. I have successfully programmed my Pi B+, but can’t get the Arduino programmed. I started out with an ATmega328P CH340G Development Board UNO R3 I got from China, which didn’t have the ACM0 interface. Rather than try to debug, I bought this Sainsmart Uno recommended by Fuzze in the HBT thread hoping to solve my problem. The interface is now correct, but that’s about it.
I have tried to install the latest FW, brewpi-core-0.4.3.bin, to both 328P and Uno after reading some other similar posts. I still get the same errors. The following is what I get when trying to program from the web interface:

I’m not a programmer, but an electrical engineer who has been designing hardware and programming FW and reviewing software for many years, so I’m familiar with what I’m trying to do, but growing more frustrated as things don’t work as expected. I’ll also note that the yellow LED is blinking on my Arduino, if that means anything. I have used multiple known good USB cables, so I don’t think that’s an issue. Any suggestions are appreciated.
