Radio was previously programming with Chirp. After latest CHIRP update, get message on any connect attempt "Radio did not respond".

Clone Progress bar displays, but does not advance, radio backlight comes on and radio reboots, Clone progress bar still does not advance, then the message "Radio did not respond" appears.

debug file attached.

I am helping an old Vietnam vet who is trying to get into HAM radio. He lives alone and doesn't have a lot of money. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
