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

        Same issue with me. Any idea when it will be fixed or what the fix is?

        Had the same thing happen yesterday. It was working fine last week.
        Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]
        Major: 5
        Minor: 1
        Build: 15063
        Revision: 138

        The only thing of note is the Windows 10 Creator's update that happened between these updates. (May or may not be related.)
