When I press enter on "Update-help -force" I get the following error, can someone help me what to do?

PS C:\Windows\system32> update-help -force
update-help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) 'PrintManagement' with UI culture(s) {en-US} : Unable to connect
to Help content. The server on which Help content is stored might not be available. Verify that the server is
available, or wait until the server is back online, and then try the command again.

That just means there's no updated help file available on the server. There's nothing you can do.

Not EVERY module has updatable help online.
