after looking through the /usr/share/info/bash.info.gz file I think I found the

inside /usr/share/info/bash.info.gz it says:
File: bashref.info,  Node: Top,  Next: Introduction,  Prev: (dir),  Up: (dir)

while the name of the file is bash.info and not bashref.info.

this explains the error message displayed by yelp:

'The info document "bashref" could not be found. It may have
been removed from your system.'
