Can't download 4.8

i recently downloaded the epic games launcher and tried to download unreal engine 4.8, but i get a message that says, “Install Failed. Couldn’t download information. Please try again later. Code 1.”
Could it be because of my internet? It is extremely slow.
Just so you know I’m am a beginner and know very little about unreal engine.

Hi poldasauce,

Please check out the Launcher Troubleshooting guide found here:

In particular, check the “The Launcher is unable to download content” section. If nothing there helps, please follow the instructions for finding and attaching the log files. Thanks!
