Anki crashed and does not offer the 'check database function'

None of the apps on my laptop such as Word, Excel etc. can be opened because Anki crashed. When I try to close Anki, an error pops up that does not allow me to do so. I looked up what to do in such a situation and I read that I have to check my database under the tools section. However, I cannot access this function with the current state of my laptop. This is the information that is in the error report:
Anki 2.1.26 (70784154) Python 3.8.1 Qt 5.9.7 PyQt 5.13.2
Platform: Mac 10.11.6
Flags: frz=True ao=False sv=?
Add-ons, last update check: 2020-07-19 13:10:44

Caught exception:

I hope someone can help me!
