Cannot download, always stuck at 8%

Hello! I had UE5 early access 1 , and it worked great! Now Early access 2 released and i cannot download UE5 from the launcher At all.

It always gets stuck at 8% saying “We’re having trouble connecting” no matter what i do.
I do not have trouble with my internet at all, i can in fact download UE4 from the epic games launcher, without this issue.

What i’ve tried?

  1. Deleting UE5 & Epic games launcher and reinstalling
  2. Installing on 4 different harddrives, none work, always stuck at 8%

As a last resort i built from source, but it is not the cleanest solution.

Also here is a screenshot of how it looks when it gets stuck.
