  Do you see a menu that asks for a protocol? If not, maybe you have some
other keys combination for sending files -- it may be Alt-S insteas of
Ctrl-A S. Check the help message (minicom should say something like
"Press CTRL-A Z for help on special keys" on startup -- do it).

  After you do that, go to setial port settings menu (usually Ctrl-A P)
and change the speed to 115200, exit the menu and press Enter -- you will
see the prompt again.

  GNOME terminal uses Alt-<letter> mapping in a way that is supported
by minicom, so it's possible that you have Alt (aka Meta) configured as a
command key instead of Ctrl-A. To change the settings, run minicom -s and
choose "Screen and keyboard" in the menu, then change command key to
whatever you want to use (Ctrl-A by default), then save the setup.
