Cannot dismiss Windows Update schedule message in TeamViewer

I often find myself connecting to my remote Windows 10 computer to find a Windows Update alert "We've got an update for you" giving me the options to restart now, postpone or acknowledge (OK) the message.

However I cannot click any of the buttons remotely, nor do anything else on my remote desktop. Most importantly, I can't dismiss/postpone the message so I can save some work or perform another urgent task. All I can do is get TeamViewer to reboot the computer.

How can I address this?
