Do we have a method or Script to make changes in the Software Update Pop-up window?
I would like to change the word "administrator" to something "your login credentials"

The Reason I asked, because during the Ventura 13.0.1 update we get this pop-up. And Standard user do not have Admin credentials and the message says to enter the admin credentials.
On other hand, if standard user enter there Mac login credentials "It Works". - Able to install the 13.0.1 Update.
So, I was wondering if The Message says User Login or just Login instead of Administrator then Standard User can go ahead and enter there Credentials to do the Update Rather than getting Confused to use Admin or Self Credentials.😬

MacOS really exists 10-15 years in the past. You need a lot of 3rd party tools and extensions to add functionality that Apple should have added years ago.
As for why it works for standard users. On Apple Silicon, Software Updates don't actually need Admin access they need Volume Ownership (Intel Macs use a bootstrap token for software updates which comes from admin access). Should Apple update this message to reflect the current authentication requirements? Absolutely, but the only way they will even considering updating anything is if enough feedback requests are submitted.
Your only real option is to get documentation and training out to your users.
Don't get me started on the miserable state that OS updates have been for years with macOS lol.

Nudge is a good Option. However, May I know once they get the Nudge pop-up and click to update will that not redirect to Software Update to Click the Update button or Ask for Admin credentials to continue the Update?
