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.
update-help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) 'PSDesiredStateConfiguration' 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

I am running Windows 10 with the latest updates!

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
