but how can I pass the post id ?

add_action('frm_after_update_entry', 'update_post_statusr', 10, 2);
function update_post_statusr($entry_id, $form_id){
if ( $form_id == 2 ) {

$postid = $_POST['item_meta'][?];//
$status = $_POST['item_meta'][10];//

$my_post = array(
'ID' => $postid,
'post_status' => $status,

wp_update_post( $my_post );

You need to retrieve the post ID from the entry or examine the contents of the PHP $_POST associative array to see if its available there.
