Hi @angelw1 ,

 

Windows 10 Updates “downloading status” and “pending install status” can be detected through the custom action, you have to write your own custom action which internally use com interfaces Windows Update Agent (WUA) to fetch all these information. More information on Windows Update Agent (WUA) interfaces can be found at the below link:
