I can't download any application or software after using the applications setup/install exe.

So yesterday I was on my PC and was trying to open discord but it wouldn't open at all so I uninstalled it and when to reinstall it from the official website and after downloading's the discord setup exe file every time I open it an error pops up "Installation has failed" There was an error while installing the application. Check the setup log for more information and contact the author. I thought this was only discord at first but then I went to the Microsoft store to download discord from there but It still wouldn't let me download.
Any help would be appreciated its so stressful because there seems to always be an issue everyday with this computer and I'm so sick of it.

    1. Right-click on the Discord installer file and select "Run as administrator."
    2. Open Command Prompt as administrator.
    3. Run the following commands, one by one:
      • sfc /scannow
      • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
      • Restart

    If required, try downloading the Discord installer again from the official website using a different web browser or a different computer/network connection.
