PowerShell get-help update-help

Troubleshooting update-help in Powershell can be simplified using the -Force and -Ea 0 commands to continue past errors along with the to “-Ev what” to record the errors in a verbose manner to the $what variable.

The $what variable can then be reviewed more closely and the cause of the failure (hopefully) identified.

Update-Help  -Force -Ea 0 -Ev what
$what.Exception
