We have iPads deployed with User Affinity and without the App Store being active.  The Comp Portal is asking for an update, and when we tap "update" it takes us to the Safari page of the app.  There is a "Learn More" button, and that takes us to the MS Docs page and says to update through the App Store.

The Comp Portal set to install during configuration and our VPP is set to automatically update apps.  iPads are on versions 12.4 to 13.3.  I am stuck.

 

Thanks

@ralGoCanes We had the same problem.

 

Try this, create a new group and required it on the app, if its not required its not going to update.
