Unhappy LORs still not in ERAS PostOffice

Guys, I am in a horrible situation right now. I uploaded two letters of recommendation on Sept 22nd. Two weeks later, when I thought they would be uploaded, they weren't. I did the LiveChat thing in the ERAS-ECFMG website and they told me that the letters had the cover letter and that they needed to remove those pages, and that they would be able to fix it by the end of the week. Today, a week later, still no letters, and when I asked, they said the same thing. So I asked the person which way would be faster: wait for them to fix them/upload them or submitting them again without the mistake made in the first place?

He said he didn't have a time estimate... A lot of letters need to be fixed... It is up to me to decide if I want to wait or upload the again...

So, I don't know what to do. Anyone having the same situation?

So far, I've only gotten one interview and I'm afraid that it will be the only one , although, he did tell me that programs get automatically notified when new letters/documents become available. But, with so many applications, who knows if they'll bother to look again?
Time is precious...
