Sites only Syncing once per day

Child sites are not syncing to the mainwp dashboard site except for once a day. What am I doing wrong?

MainWP Settings: Automatic daily sync time: 1:00
MainWP Settings: Daily Update frequency: Twelve times per day
MainWP Cron Schedule shows mainwp_cronupdatescheck_action has never run but WP: Cron Logs shows that mainwp_cronupdatescheck_action is running every minute.

Here is a screen shot of the MainWP: Sites which shows last sync on April 24, 2020 12:51 am and its currently April 24, 2020 8:45 am.

Here is some additional information. On the MainWP → Sites page it indicates that the last sync was April 27, 2020 12:53 am but on the MainWP → Overview page it says “Last successfully completed synchronization: April 27, 2020 5:06 pm”

MainWP will sync to your Child Sites at the same time Daily( Once Per Day ) at the time you have set above - 1:00AM
You are setting the Daily Update frequency to “Twelve times per day” this is not “Sync Twelve Times Per day”

If you need custom Cron jobs or times I suggest that you forgo using
WP_Cron and use your host’s cron system instead. Here is an article to hep you with this transition: Scheduled Events Not Occurring - MainWP Documentation

There sounds like you may be having wp_cron issues. You you would like us to take a look please feel free to open a Private Support ticket over on our website instead of here. Support - MainWP WordPress Management.
