Empty Marketplace in the Epic Games Launcher

When I run the Epic Games Launcher, it shows an empty marketplace for some reason. So it won’t let me buy anything. Any advice on how to fix this? I tried to uninstall and reinstall and rebooted, but get the same thing. Attached is a screen shot to show you what I see. All of the other tabs seem functional, but I can’t really use the engine without the marketplace. I can access the marketplace in a web browser, but even that needs the Epic Games Launcher Marketplace to actually download items. Please help.
