Update-Help Failing When Running W10 on VMWare Fusion RRS feed

  • Question

  • Working on learning PowerShell. My attempt to update help yields the following error. I am network connected.

    update-help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) 'WindowsUpdateProvider' with UI culture(s) {en-US} : Unable to
    retrieve the HelpInfo XML file for UI culture en-US. Make sure the HelpInfoUri property in the module manifest is
    valid or check your network connection and then try the command again.

        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnableToRetrieveHelpInfoXml,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.UpdateHelpCommand

  • Some modules do not have updateable help.  That module is from the PowerSHell repository and is community provided.  It does not support updateable help.
