SCCM updating Application deployment

In SCCM I created an application rather than a package for deploying Office. I have a change to an XML file for the deployment. I copied to my source directory and need to update my Distribution Point (Only have one). If I had created a Package, then I could just highlight, right click and choose "update Distribution Points". Seeing applications don't have that, I tried the following:

Update-CMDistributionPoint -ApplicationName "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016" -DeploymentTypeName "Deploying Office 2016"

To get there, I ran
Get-Wmiobject -Namespace "root\SMS\Site_FCB" -Class SMS_Application
and for -application name I used
LocalizedDisplayName: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016

for DeploymentTyeName I used
LocalizedDescription : Deploying Office 2016

However I get the following error:

PS FCB:\>Update-CMDistributionPoint -ApplicationName "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016" -DeploymentTypeName "Dep
oying Office 2016"
At line:1 char:1
 Update-CMDistributionPoint -ApplicationName "Microsoft Office Professional Plus  ...
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (Microsoft.Confi...ionPointCommand:UpdateDistributionPointCommand) [Upd
  ate-CMDistributionPoint], ArgumentException
   + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ArgumentException,Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.Cmdlets.Osd.Commands.UpdateDistribut
  ionPointCommand

am I using the wrong fields?

Hi,

That looks fine to me, as per https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj850071(v=sc.20).aspx.
You need to be careful/aware that some cmdlets just don't work mind. I could not get creating ISOs to work no matter what I did until that is I got the latest version. This is entirely a standalone update for PowerShell CM, not an upgrade.

The latest version is 5.0.8373.1189, which is for the 1604 release

PowerShell cmdlet library for ConfigMgr

There IS a gui option -
   Software Library -> Applications -> Highlight Application -> Bottom window choose deployment types -> right click -> update complete

(Thanks Microsoft tech support)

I thought this was a PowerShell question, rather than "where's the update button". My answer was specifically how to get the PowerShell cmdlet to work. I doubt the OP tried it but can't tell.

I did update the poweshell commands to the latest version, and the content of the error changed, a little more descriptive, but it still error-ed out. The original question was how to update the contents of the package. I tried Powershell because I could not find the way to update. But the purpose of the question was how to update.

Fair enough - I missed that bit amongst all the PowerShell. Wish I had noticed as I could have saved you the MS call.
