Cronjobs do not run, even started manually

I have been trying to get some Mainwp Jobs run automaticly for a while now, but without success. The most important job for me would the updatecheck job. I tried to let it run with easycron and also with the cron of my webserver. Even if I call the URL direct the job starts and finishes some seconds later without error, but nothing happens. The list of plugins to be actualized is not up to date. I’m not sure if I doing something wrong.

I would really appreciate every hint helping me.

Hi @alexpr, thanks for getting back to me.

The system report looks fine. Nothing unusual in there. However, I am curious to see what happens if you enable the Use WP Cron feature in MainWP Settings. Can you please do that and monitor your setup for next 48 hours to see if the updates start working? This will tell us where to continue looking.
