    Default update you on the progress/get you updated on the progress

    A contractor says: I will update you on the construction progress.
    I want to know if we can use 'update' like that.

    Would it be better to say: I will get you updated on the contruction progress.

    "I will update you" is fine and natural.

    "I will keep you updated" is OK, but it is a different, ongoing commitment.
