SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition Installation Issues

I tried to install SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition and the Express Edition and I am receiving the following errors.
I tried to uninstall them and reinstall by following a step by step uninstall process however it still doesn't work.
Any help will be appreciated.

So on both screenshots there are paths to folders. Did you look in these folders?

In both you will find a file Summary.txt. This file rarely gives the full story - or even something vaguely helpful. But it is still a start. At least it gives an idea of what component that failed.

There is also a file Detail.txt. This file is very verbose, but in situations like these there are typically .NET stack dumps. Open it and go to the bottom, and scroll upwards until you find the first stack dump, as that is likely to be the root cause.

I am not saying that you will find the reason why Setup fails, because the dumps are not always that decipherable. But at least you will have conducted more troubleshooting than you have now.

If you ask further questions, it helps to know if this is your private machine, of if this is a computer in a corporate network.
