    Sorry if this is a repeat question but I am trying to figure out why I am getting this error message when I try to update help. I am new to this and even my "instructor" can't help with my error message. I would any assistance with this. Thanks.

    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

    Is there anything that I could try to correct this or is this a known issue?

    My suspicion is that the help for that module isn't available yet. DSC is still a work in progress and there may well be changes when Server 2016 ships

    I personally expect the help file at that time
