Anthem can't join friends

I cannot accept any invites from friends in origin’s Anthem, as well I am unable to join via “join expedition”. Whenever I try to hit join expedition it says matchmaking error yet other times it works. If I get an invite it says press Y to join yet Y doesnt do anything. I also tried virtual desktop to see if that would help but it was actually worse. In virtual desktop, the window appears on the game and ontop of the game, the window ontop will not let me do aynthing and locks up the game.

Anyone have any suggestions to fix this?
