Leak in sunroom roof

In my sunroom we have an aluminum roof that appears to be attached to the rest of the house roof at the soffit. We have developed a leak towards the middle of the room at the seam where the sunroom roof and the house roof attach to each other. Iím not super well versed in this type of diy but my initial thought was to just recaulk. Husband says maybe water will build up behind where we recaulk though so Iím not sure. Iíve attached some pictures, any dumbed down advice would be very welcome and appreciated!

A picture on top of the roof above where the leak is located would be helpful.

Where you see the leak inside only gives you a rough idea of the leak's actual location. You will have to get up on the roof and the area uphill of where you saw the water and look for the cause.
