Try this line-

echo Yes|gpupdate /force
Not all programs will accecpt text via a pipe.

Not something I have done recently but you might want to try

  gpupdate /force /yes

I know gpupdate /force /no stops the reboot...

Option 1
Create this in a batch file
Rem This will create a scheduled task either local or remote and will run gpupdate within 1 minute, unless you specify a start time (ST)
SCHTASKS /Create /S ComputerName /U domain\username /P password /SC MINUTE /MO 1 /TN TaskName  /TR "gpupdate /force" /ST StartTime--defaults to now if no time specified
Rem This will then reboot your PC within 3 minutes
Shutdown -f -r -t  180 -m ComputerName

Alternatively you can create a batch file for the schedule to start instead of starting gpupdate directly. If you go this root you must either have the batch file on each system or have it ina central location all users have access to--I will assume a central location located at g:\Utils\GP-Update.Bat. In this option this batch file will be scheduled and not gpupdate and shutdown/restart will not start until gpupdate is done

Option 2
Create this in a batch file
Rem GP-Update.Bat
:gpupdate /force
Shutdown -f -r -t  120

Now create a scheduled task to run this batch file
SCHTASKS /Create /S ComputerName /U domain\username /P password /SC MINUTE /MO 1 /TN TaskName  /TR G:\Utils\GP-Update.bat /ST StartTime--defaults to now if no time specified

Depending on permissions and who you specify as /U user this by itself may work but if not you may have to use the run as user command /RU and /RP (note if passwords are not specified they will be asked for). Hope this helps.

Correction--was :gpupdate (:) should be gpupdate without the :  -- sorry about that
Option 2
Create this in a batch file
Rem GP-Update.Bat
gpupdate /force
Shutdown -f -r -t  120
