HP Easy Start frozen on installation of essential software

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 5055 All In One
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My printer hasn't been connecting and I've been unable to print anything. I've tried a lot of things already, and I ended up resetting the printer to default settings and uninstalling all of HP software, so basically I'm starting as if I just bought this printer. Upon opening HP Easy Start, my printer is not found automatically. I connect to the printer via wifi, then once it finds it, I select continue and have to switch back to my regular wifi network to connect to the internet. It gets all the way to the point where I need to download and install the essential software, easy scan, and product help. I click "install" and then it freezes. When I try to close the program, it says I can't quit during installation but it appears that nothing is actually happening. So I force quit, try it again, and it freezes at the same point. It was just working the other day, I really don't understand what changed. Please help!
