The error you mentioned may appear when there is some error in the Origin files.
But if you have any mods move mods folder to the desktop and delete localthumbcache.package file in your games folder.

If it will not work, clean Origin cache

If it also will not work
Unistal Origin manually and download it again from here

It would also be helpful if you could post here dxDiag of your computer
