Tile won't stick

I am not a first time ceramic tiler, but I am struggling to get my tile to stick to my concrete slab on my sunporch. i STARTED USING VERSA BOND THIN SET DIRECTLY TO THE SLAB AND it doent seem to stick everywhere, I let it sit 2 days. Then I went for omni grip(big mistake ) it has been 2 days and it is still soft. Why won't it adhere

Tile won't stick

Has the slab been painted or sealed?

Did you first test for water absorption abilities of the slab?

It had an epoxy coating put on 3 yrs ago. I scraped the crap out of it and I believe I had a good surface. The slab has been there around 40 years so I didn't do an absorbtion test
