how do i seal this outside edge on roof

The pictures are pretty self explanatory, but I have an external edge on my roof that I need to either flash, or if anyone has other advice i'll take that too. Its been leaking, and I've tried cutting numerous pieces of that roll aluminum flashing, but i'm not a metal worker or a roofer for a living and have limited knowledge. Any advice would ease my headache. thanks.

That is a hot mess.

Can you snap a picture from further back?

Figure on taking all at leas one exposure of the roll out roofing and doing this transition in metal and properly.

Thanks for the reply. What would you suggest metal wise to get that transition sealed off?
