Can't start or login to Epic Games Launcher

Hi! Have seen various topics about this but can’t find a fix. I’ve opened port 5222 as it suggests on the Epic Games help site but still no luck in even getting the thing to login. I uninstalled to see if that would help (and a reinstall) and now it won’t even update the launcher, just gets stuck.

Anyone had any joy from this? Currently stuck unable to progress past installing the launcher

You just can’t log in? Strange. You could try a VPN? There are a few that are free on the web

Forgot to update this! Turns out there was an AWS outage at the time I was trying to login. Finally discovered it by looking on the Fortnite subreddit

All fine now
