If I understand what you're asking, that documentation comes from the function/class/etc. docstring in the function/class/etc. itself. Therefore, to update the documentation, assuming an update exist, you also need to update the relevant package its part of, which may or may not be desired.

Sorry, but I already explained this to you, no such link exists. You can't just "download the updated documentation" as displayed in Spyder's Help viewer, as everything shown there is an intrinsic part of whatever package the function/class/etc. belongs to. To update the documentation, if updates exist, you must update that package via the normal means.

I had even update the spyder also but some class/function details it won't be able to show us.

Some class/function details are simply not introspectable via static means (i.e. in the Editor), due to the design of the source packages themselves (over which we have no control) or limitations in our third part y introspection libraries (over which we also have no control). Try getting help for it in the Console instead, to use dynamic introspection and avoid most of these problems.

Most likely n1 is not defined, or you've made some other mistake. In any case, that appears to be user error with basic Python usage, so try reading the documentation, searching on Stack Overflow or tracing your code more carefully. This chat is intended for Spyder help; there are many much more appropriate resources to resolve simple Python problems. Thanks, and best of luck!
Of course, we're always happy to help if you have a Spyder-related issue, and Spyder can help you with finding many basic syntax errors and coding mistakes. Check the warning and error symbols that automatically appear to the left of your code if Spyder detects a problem with it. You can also access basic help and documentation resources from Spyder's Help menu.

'Murica. The rest of the developers are from Colombia, Brazil, Canada, France, and the Netherlands, and we've had contributors from every corner of the world, since Spyder is a developed by and for its global community.
