Problem with edit Instagram post

When I try to edit a scheduled post on Instagram and I click "save" a new window is open: . My account is already set up as business. I click skip and I click "save" again but the window opens again. If I click set up it is asking me to "set up your mobile device for Instagram" .So I can't edit the scheduled post. Any help? Thanks!
