One the latest build of Windows 10 – 14296 I’m getting errors when updating help. Three modules do’t seem to have help available

Update-Help : Failed to update Help for the module(s) ‘Microsoft.PowerShell.Operation.Validation’
with UI culture(s) {en-GB} : 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/en-gb/?ocid=NEFLS000′ does not resolve to a container.
