It looks like it doesn't ignore the line "The following packages have an upgrade available" and adds that empty to Going to Upgrade. It resulted in winget parsing the entire library with nothing to upgrade since its the entire uninstalled list on my end.

PS Totally forgot to say thank you for optimising this script.

did u uncomment the last line "winget upgrade -u ..." ?
it was commented out, so no real upgrade was done.

winget seems to be bit unreliable on win11 as well. Also i would ignore those .net6 upgrades, these should be done with windows update anyway and seems to often fail with winget

@ShaguarWKL if you change line 26 to the following you can exclude that:

if ($isStartList -lt 1 -and -not $_.StartsWith("Name") -or $_.StartsWith("---") -or $_.StartsWith("The following packages have an upgrade"))

Yes I did uncomment that's how I saw the empty field ended up listing the entire winget library.

Yup it says upgrade but never upgrade. It's added to my ignore already. FotoSketcher is another one, the Winget version has 3.80 but for some reason it can't pull the installed version which is also 3.80

Nice work! There's some minor issue with a package though. This is the winget update output:

And for some reason the Microsoft Visual C++ package info is not being formatted properly.

i am using this
Start-Process powershell -ArgumentList "winget upgrade -u $($_.Id); Read-Host"
instead of
winget upgrade -u $_.Id

is there a problem with this aproach?
