Please connect those wireless computers to wired network and reboot them and check if they are getting software please

If the source files are located on a Distributed File System (DFS) share, confirm that the machine account has sufficient NTFS and share permissions on all root replicas of the DFS root, and on all replica shares of the DFS link.

Also check application events and system events on the problematic machines.

@ Mahesh : I have tried connecting through the cable but the same issue.

@ arjun@ I have shared the folder on DC but it working on other computers.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

After checking he event viewer logs

Error event is logged, after running gpupdate I get the following error message:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{3FA16EAF-3A76-4972-88CE-1BA2435CA08E}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller
has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

i applied this solution here

Thank you Mahesh and Arjun for your suggestions.
