Epic games launcher update loop

Hello! This is a problem that many people in my school’s modeling and simulation club. Whenever we open unreal or epic games it says an update to the system is required and starts a 30 second countdown. We can exit out of this and get to unreal but some of this need to download products off the marketplace and can’t do that without the Epic Games program. After the countdown or if you click the continue button it closes and opens a 31.4 MB verifying update menu.Once that fully loads it closes and reopens the update required page and this continues to loop. I haven’t let it go for more than 15 minutes because I expect it won’t change. I can’t get to the program without fixing this so I need all the help I can get.
