Epoxy to repair gutter end piece outlet

I was doing some repairs on my gutters and I managed to break the seal where the outlet connects to the gutter end piece. Consequently, on a heavy rain when the gutter gets filled, lots of water leaks out the gutter and runs down the outside of the elbows and downspouts and pools close to the corner of my house.

Is there an epoxy that can repair that seal, or should I just replace the gutter end piece so I have a sound outlet seal?

Thanks

If it's the outlet, just remove the downspout, remove the outlet, clean and dry the area around the outlet and reattach it using a gutter sealant. If you need a new outlet, you can just by that- no need to get new gutter pieces.

If you're referring to the end cap, that can just be crimped and caulked around the interior with gutter sealant, provided it's clean and dry.
