Installing optional packages - infinite loop

I am using SageMath 9.1 on a Window machine.

I would like to install the gap_packages optional package, so I typed the following into the shell.

sage -i gap_packages

This gives the following output (repeating indefinitely):

make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[1]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[2]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[3]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[4]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[5]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[6]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[7]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
make build/make/Makefile --stop
make[8]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.1'
...

The same behavior occurs whenever I try to install any of the other optional packages.

Where am I going wrong here?
