Sorry to disappoint you. The Intel Driver & Support Assistant can not be trusted yet. This utility is not fully debugged. The best way to update drivers is manually. You shall start with the Chipset Driver and the Intel Management Engine Driver (if you want to update them). Reboot the computer and that install all the other drivers (sequence is not important) . Now, you need to reboot the computer only once, after the last driver is installed.
Tiz a week of disappointments.
Downloaded and tried to install manually.
They go through the motions and proudly annouce "Success!" but in the end it's a fail. No change.
I then completely removed the drivers form the system and reinstalled.
Again they go through the motions and proudly annouce "SuccessI" but in the end it's a fail.
Indeed the LAN driver took me back a version. Which I then updated through the Windows device manager app.
Been a bad week for Intel hardware and software around here.
Sorry, don't have a solution but seem to have exactly the same Problem.
Manual Installation (even after preceeding Deinstallation) does not change the behavior.
The Wireless 188.8.131.52 remains installed and 20.10.2 will not be installed, whatever and howoften you try to install it.
Clicking the blue "Update availlable" buttons shows Version Info for about half a second at each click.
Cold comfort, however, all seems to work still as it should.
