This has been the case for a very long time, it is frustrating only because one of the first exercises in some of the popular PowerShell tutorials and books is to "run Update-Help and ensure that it completes without errors." Then go to a round room and stand in the corner. It does not prevent all of the other help from updating, which would make it a more serious bug.
However, the error messages you show are outright lies -- "English-US help content is available and can be installed using: Update-Help -UICulture en-US."
That is intended to show when a specific help item just hasn't been translated to/provided for the UICulture your session is running as, but it still appears when the culture you were going for was en-US in the first place, as you show. That is a separate issue from the fact that the specific help features in question don't have valid content (or at least not valid URL's to the content if they do exist somewhere).
