Forms 8829 and 8895 will not update

I am ready to file return but it says both form 8829 and form 8895 are not ready and will be "ready soon".  However when I visit this link: https://care-cdn.prodsupportsite.a.intuit.com/forms-availability/turbotax_fed_windows_individual.htm...
it shows they are available.  When I visit IRS.gov those forms are available in their final form.  

How do I force an update since the system is not updating?

Try refreshing your screen, then try clearing your browser's cache. 

Then log out and log back into TurboTax. You can also try using a different browser.

That did not work, but uninstalling the software and reinstalling did make it work.  Rep said there was some glitch when they updated the software.

Did you have to complete your return again?

No. It saves all the data even after uninstalling.  It only uninstalls the program, not the data.

Save your return to your computer before you uninstall and reinstall the program.   As long as you have your tax file (return name.tax2020) saved, you can open it using any installation of TurboTax.  You should not have to reinstall the software, though.    Did you try updating yet?
