Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you.
Just follow the instructions. With only black and white wires, one set goes to the switch. The white to the switch is used for a hot wire and connects to all the other blacks. It's paired black is the return from the switch and connects to the fixture. All the whites and the fixture white connect together. Take it step by step.
There is no other option. With the wires you have it has to work. If there were red wires then it would be the only other possibility. Step by step it will work.
I'll be online. You're welcome.
OK, swap the paired black with it. That white powers the switch and the black will switch the light.
