I have and Arduino Nano and an Arduino Nano Every. I'm doing some experiments and trying to program the Nano Every from the Nano, using the UPDI port.

I'm using tutorials like this one that does the same thing but instead of Arduino Nano Every he wants to program an ATtiny.

What I did so far:

1. Transform Arduino Nano into a UPDI programer:

1.1 Clone jtag2updi and open jtag2updi.ino. Connect Arduino Nano through USB to my computer and compile and upload jtag2updi with Arduino IDE just like any other sketch.

1.2 Connect a capacitor of 10uF between RST and GND pins of Arduino Nano

1.3 Install MegaCoreX into Arduino IDE.

2. Program Arduino Nano Every from a UPDI:

2.1 Connect UPDI pin from Arduino Nano Every to pin D6 of Arduino Nano with a 4.7k resistor. Connect 5V and GND of both boards.

2.2 In Arduino IDE open the Blink example and chose from the Tools menu the following configuration:

enter image description here

2.3 Compile and upload sketch.

Error:

And the problem is that it gives this error:

Arduino: 1.8.12 (Mac OS X), Board: "ATmega4809, Nano Every, Reset, BOD 2.6V, Internal 20 MHz, No bootloader"

    Thanks but same error.

I'm not sure if you ever solved this issue but for me this error was occurring because the ATmega4809 chip was not powered on. By adjusting the wiring I managed to get rid of the "RSP_NO_TARGET_POWER" error.

So I would suggest double checking wiring and then use the "Upload using programmer" (in "Sketch" tool-bar menu) to upload as suggested by Juraj.
