Installing the MSFT Core Fonts

Linux Mint:19.3
I am trying to install the MSFT core font pack, and I'm using the software manager to achieve it.
I accidentally did not click the box to accept the EULA, and it installed, but did not actually install any of the fonts.
So, I uninstalled and attempted to re-install, but it no longer offers me the EULA and again fails to install.
How do I get a 2nd chance to accept the EULA?

According to the site below when in your situation, you need to purge and reinstall. Explanations on how and why are at the site. The post is a bit old so I'm not sure it will work but expect it will. Might try an online search for something more recent. I missed the EULA on this software years ago but can't remember if I had to reinstall.

I usually install the MS ttf fonts using the Terminal:

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Install synaptic if you donít already have it:

sudo apt install synaptic
Then search in synaptic package managerís installed items for ttf (TrueType Fonts).

Status > Installed > Search.

If ttf-mscorefonts-installer is shown as installed, then remove it and try installing it again.
