Microsoft 365 Apps for Windows 10 - constantly downloading

Phill C 6 Reputation points

Since the beginning of setting up intune > Company Portal app for Win 10 endpoints, the Microsoft 365 app is always showing as downloading. Occassionally, it completes and updates - I've only seen this once or twice. It's only ever sitting at 'downloading'. This occurs for every workstation in my org (<100).
The constant status of downloading is a bit unnerving, as I don't know if its constanting consuming bandwidth or just failing?

I've deployed the app in intune using the Microsoft built in option for 'Microsoft 365 apps'. Perhaps that's the issue?

Anyone else running into this issue? Something I'm missing or not doing quite right?
