This is because you accessed the repeater data and brought it into a
tab that did not originate from your radio. It probably says "GENERIC
CSV: {somefilename}.csv" in the tab. The tab you upload must say
"Baofeng UV-5R: {somefilename}.img".

So the quick and dirty thing to do is to copy and past from the
"GENERIC CSV:" tab to the "Baofeng UV-5R" tab so you can upload it to
your radio.
