Where do you get this command? Are you using the epigraph package?
Please show us a Minimal Worked Example (see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimal_working_example) that we can test.

1. The \epigraph command automatically uses flushright — you do not need

2. The \footnotesize command is not scoped, so it does not have any
argument, so you do not put text in curly braces.
But in any case it is not relevant — see the documentation, p.3 for how
to change size:

\renewcommand{\epigraphsize}{\footnotesize}
\epigraph{[\dots] text\dots}{author and year}

You must read the documentation for the epigraph package.

If your \epigraph command is failing, then it may affect following
commands. You need to fix /epigraph first.
