I have a Digistump's ATtiny85 (probably a clone ), which fails uploading any sketch, saying: Warning: device with unknown new version of Micronucleus detected. This tool doesn't know how to upload to this new device. Updates may be available. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and Arduino IDE 1.8.13.

I used these guides:

  1. Digistump's troubleshooting for linux

  2. Kovo's blog

After using these guides, finally I stop getting this error, but when trying to upload the firmware ( last line at Kovo's ), I get this error:

`guy@desktop:~/tmp/micronucleus/upgrade$ ~/.arduino15/packages/digistump/tools/micronucleus/2.0a4/launcher -cdigispark  --timeout 60 -Uflash:w:~/tmp/micronucleus/upgrade/t85_default.hex:i

Did someone encounter this ?
