Is it possible to update provisioned apps via command line? (e.g.: During OSD)

Occasional Contributor

TL;DR: Via command line, is it possible to trigger all provisioned apps to self update for all user profiles (current and future) even when no one is logged in?  


We recently noticed that on freshly imaged machines, all of the built-in provisioned apps (Calc, Calendar, Weather, Microsoft Store etc.) are woefully out of date.  In reviewing our Task Sequence we used to start the "Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\Automatic App Update" scheduled task, but it appears this scheduled task has disappeared.  This is disappointing as we no longer know what command it was executing to trigger the updating of those apps.


That said, is there anything that can be done to force all provisioned apps for all user profiles, both those that currently exist and future ones as well?
