F-secure EPP and EDR

We have few users where F-secure gives a pop-up which says :

F-secure elements have received a critical update. To keep your protection up to date. please restart the computer.

However, even after restart, F-secure again give the same pop up. After multiple restarts the issue remains the same.

The f-secure client version is 22.2 and AV version 4.33.659.0

Windows version : Windows 10 professional (10.0.19041)

This is very annoying for users. and I am looking for the cause and solution for this issue
