MSI B450 Tomahawk Max ATX
Corsair VS550 550-Watt Power Supply
Corsair 16 GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz
Seagate 1TB Firecuda (Solid State Hybrid) SATA 6GB/s 64MB Cache 3.5"
Samsung LC27FG73FQWXXL 27-inch Curved Gaming Monitor

Based on the specs provided for your system, your maximum wattage is approximately 380 - 400 watts. Your system running near 100% briefly will over-load the stated wattage of the UPS. You need more wattage from the UPS to power your system, it may help to check / replace the batteries if they are older than 3 years old. But ultimately you need a larger UPS.

It's a new UPS, so I don't think battery is the reason. If I have to upgrade, how much agould be the recommended VA for my system?
 
since u have psu with 550watts with 80% efficiency, thats about 660watts from wall (max)
your pc componnents wont need that much, gpu ~225watts, cpu ~80, ram, mobo etc, lets say 20watts
~320watts from psu (80%eff so 384watts from wall)
that would be just PC, if u have other things connected to it (monitor 80watts, speakers dunno)
