According to the image you sent, you have TeXLive 2015. You can't update
that any more: TeXLive distributions are “frozen” when a new one is
released every year. I would advise you to install, if possible, this
I don't use Windows, but the error I see in the image you sent seems to
be about the code page you use (cp720). I don't know if it will cause a
problem with a new TeXLive 2020 installation.

According to the README in
yes, that will do ---but I can't be sure if revtex 4.2 (2019) will work
fine under TeXLive 2015.
