Bug: Powershell Get-Help does not work with Exchange Online cmdlets

We've been lucky, from what I'm gathering from web searches! Until December last year, Exchange Online Powershell cmdlet help was available using Get-Help in the shell. However, after the Christmas break, the only response we get is:

Get-Help : Exception calling "Invoke" with "0" argument(s): "Cannot find path '' because it does
not exist."
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-Help Get-Mailbox
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-Help], MethodInvocationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : CmdletInvocationException

It's the same issue irrespective of the cmdlet.

Consequently, I'm forced to contend with painful searches of the documentation website for information of the relevant cmdlets.

Raised this question on the Github Exchange documentation site ( and Chris Davis, who noticed the issue since June, suggested I raise a support case. So not sure this is the right place to do so.

Powershell 5.1 on both Windows 7/10
