Intune not updating teams background image on current users via powershell

I have a powershell script and folder with images that I made a 32bit intune app

I created a package in intune and it would upload the image to new profiles, but it will not update any existing profiles.

It would state in the install status that it installed but nothing gets updated. I heard that there is an limitation of updating the app so I had to "uninstall" the old app and create a new one. I "uninstalled" the old one and made a new one that superseded the old one, but I have the same issue where a old profile will not get the updated images, but new profile will get the images installed. Am I missing something in the setup?AgentExecutor-10-3-2023.txt

#set upload folder
$UploadFolder="$env:APPDATA\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads"
 
# create folder if not exists
if(!(Test-Path -path $UploadFolder))  
{  
 New-Item -ItemType directory -Path $UploadFolder
 Write-Host "Folder has been created successfully"
 }
else
{ 
Write-Host "The folder already exists"; 
}
#delete old images
Remove-Item -Path $UploadFolder\*.* -Force
#copy all (image) files to the upload folder
Copy-Item -path '.\images' -Filter *.* -Destination $UploadFolder -Recurse -Container:$false

    @Jose Ortiz,Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    From you description, I know that you want to customize teams background via PowerShell but get an issue that old profile will not get updated images.

    For old configuration file, the detection rule detected that the file already existed, therefore it will not download the new configuration file and background image. Please check the detection rule in Intune and check IME log on targeted devices and share them with us.

    Thanks for your kind understanding.
