    On my laptop running Windows 10 Pro, 16107, I cannot update Help. When I run the following:

    Update-Help -Force

    I get

    Update-Help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) 'Microsoft.PowerShell.Operation.Validation' with UI culture(s) {en-US} : The value of the HelpInfoUri key in the
    module manifest must resolve to a container or root URL on a website where the help files are stored. The HelpInfoUri 'https://www.msn.com/?ocid=NEFLS000' does not
    resolve to a container.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Update-Help -Force
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [Update-Help], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvalidHelpInfoUri,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.UpdateHelpCommand

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    For that module I think you'll find that there isn't any help at the moment

    I would have expected this to work as a workaround, but it doesn't...

    Update-Help | Where-Object { $_.Module -ne 'Microsoft.PowerShell.Operation.Validation' }
