Why have all Microsoft download links for wushowhide.diagcab been broken for many months?

This important Windows Update troubleshooter is the recommended solution in many Windows support articles, but for some hidden reason Microsoft have made it impossible to obtain.

here's the direct download link to the updated wushowhide.diagcab file in case most people are wondering about it:

and yes, this link still works as I've just tested it in a recent Firefox browser version and the file is signed by SHA-2 (SHA-256) certificates by MS

@erpmanila3w Thanks for the link. Couldn't install KB5034122 and then I ran the tool with the intention of hiding the update. However it fixed the update and I was able to install it afterwards.
