WUAUCLT no more working on Windows 10? Please replace with USOCLIENT.EXE

Windows Update command line tool WUAUCLT.EXE is no more working on Windows 10 and Server 2016? 
Please replace with USOCLIENT.EXE

You could have noticed that command line

WUAUCLT /DetectNow /ReportNow /ResetAuthorization 

is no more working on Windows 10.

All command have been replaced with command line

USOCLIENT.EXE RefreshSettings StartScan StartDownload StartInstall 

You won’t find any documentation on that tool, but more usage details with the builtin tasks in
Admin Tools / Task Scheduler / Microsoft / Windows / UpdateOrchestrator

The following PowerShell lines will give you the details :

PS C:\> Get-ScheduledTask -TaskPath '\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\' `
>> | Select-Object @{Expression={$_.TaskName};Label="TaskName"}, `
>> @{Expression={$_.Actions.Execute + ' ' + $_.Actions.Arguments};Label="CommandLine"}
