I will update you once I get the reply vs I will update you once I got the reply

When you plan to update someone after you receive a response, use "I will update you once I get a reply."

I will update you once I get the reply

This is not correct. Don't use this phrase.

In certain situations, "the reply" could be correct.

Usually, you would need to use an indefinite article when referring to the response. "A reply" is more likely to be correct.

I will update you once I got the reply

This is not correct. Don't use this phrase.

This statement refers to a point of time in the future.

Change the tense of the main verb. It should be "get" instead of "got."

Usually, you wouldn't be referencing a specific reply. It would usually be "a reply."
