I've been trying to install SQL Server 2019 Express for a week now, but I get an error on install.  I've tried a lot of suggestions that I found online, but nothing that helps.  Here's the error message:  

 

TITLE: SQL Server Setup failure.
------------------------------

SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:

Failed to retrieve data for this request..

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=20476&ProdName=Microsoft%20SQL%20Server&Evtsrc=setup.rll&EvtID...

------------------------------
BUTTONS:

OK

Can anyone please provide some guidance on how to get the installation to work?
