I have tried all of the methods that used to work with Chirp and my Btech 25X4, and nothing works.
Yes I tried the work arounds show on the website to no avail.

I found the problem and it is working now. It was related to the switch to a new hosting company for the website.

Are you able to get the data from RepeaterBook into chirp and you’re just having trouble uploading to your radio? I need a little more description of the problem and your steps.

No. When I query Repeaterbook (political query) none of the repeaters show up in a file that I can upload to my radio (UV5R). It adds a file tab but it is empty when I open it.

Got it. Can you send me a link to the page you are on so that I can test?

Not exactly sure what you mean by "page". I believe CHIRP is a resident program on the computer, right? I simply select the <RADIO> option and then query political source for repeaters in my state. What am I missing?

Here is a page that explains how to report issues:

chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/...older%20that%20opens.
How To Report Issues
First things first!
Before you file a bug, please test the latest Development Version of CHIRP to see if your issue has been fixed. These builds are generated automatically every night when there is a change, and they are available from the bottom of the download page.

Please DO NOT attach the manufacturer's software to the issue. Even if you think the software is freely available via download elsewhere, that does not mean you can legally distribute it yourself. Posting it here also opens up the CHIRP website and community to potential action by owners of that software. If it is downloadable somewhere, feel free to post a link but DO NOT attach it to the issue.

Effective Bug Reporting
Effective reporting of a bug or feature is critical to getting the issue resolved in a timely manner. If bug descriptions are difficult to understand or reproduce, they are less likely to receive attention. When you are crafting your bug report, try to answer the following questions:

1. What is the behavior you are seeing?
2. What is the behavior you were expecting?
3. Can you reproduce the problem all the time?
4. What are the steps required to reproduce the problem?
5. Is this specific to a certain radio model (driver) or something that you can reproduce with another radio?

In most cases, it is important to attach an image of your radio to the bug so that a developer can look at the exact state and determine what the problem is. It is often helpful describe what you expect to see in a given memory location, as well as what you actually see. If relevant or difficult to describe what you are seeing, attaching a screenshot of the behavior may also be helpful.

For more information about how to file an effective bug report, please see Eric S. Raymond's How to ask questions the smart way

Getting your debug log
If you are expecting something to happen (such as importing from a file, or setting a memory) and CHIRP appears to ignore the request, you probably should include your debug.log. If you are getting an error message, you should definitely include the log.

The debug log is cleared every time you start chirp, so the procedure for getting a usable log is:

1. Start chirp
2. Reproduce the failure or bug
3. Close chirp
4. Copy and send the debug.log before starting chirp again

Here are some tips for getting to it on the various platforms:

Windows
Go to Start->Run and type "%APPDATA%\CHIRP". Your debug.log file will be in the folder that opens.

Linux and MacOS
Your debug log should be in your home directory, in .chirp/debug.log.
If you don't know how to find this, open up a terminal window.
(Mac: click on spotlight [the magnifying glass icon at top right corner], and type "terminal")

Run the following command at the prompt:

cp ~/.chirp/debug.log ~/Desktop
Then close the terminal window. The debug.log file will be on your desktop.

Before you do all of that, try CHIRP again. I may have fixed it.
