Office applications won't start. — Micro Center

Office applications won't start.

I have a Surface Pro purchased in 2017 which has Microsoft Office Home & Student 2016.  I am now unable to open any documents previously saved or anything new in Word, Excel or PowerPoint.  I get an orange box that says "Updating Office, please wait a moment", followed by "The application was unable to start correctly (OxC000142)." "Click OK to close the app."
How do I fix this?
