Unable to install free licence, dismiss notification or deactivate plugin

Installed the WordFence plugin and after several tries over several days, it keeps giving me an unexpected error every time I try to install the free licence.

I try to create a new page and save a draft but the WordFence notice covers the “update” buttons. When I try to dismiss the notice by clicking on “REMIND ME LATER”, it gives me an unexpected error. The other option is to “RESUME INSTALLATION”, which becomes an endless loop of trying to install the free licence, which keeps giving the error.

I try to deactivate the plugin, and no matter which option I choose between keeping tables or deleting tables, it gives me an unexpected error.

Please let me know what other details to add. I am not very technical.

Please help.
