Plugin updates with WP-CLI


I’ve been having a conversation with our WordPress hosting partner about plugin updates. It seems that you can’t check for updates to Admin Columns Pro through WP-CLI. Running this command would normally check for updates to all plugins:

wp cron event run wp_update_plugins

But that doesn’t work, so the plugin gets out of date unless we manually go into sites and check for updates from there. It looks like some plugins – Advanced Custom Fields Pro and Gravity Forms for example – do manage to register their available updates like other plugins, and can therefore be updated with WP-CLI.

Is this something that you’d need to add to the plugin code?

Thanks for your message.
We are aware that the update does not work with wp-cli.
It has something to do with the way we load our plugin and update the plugin from our own server.
There is a feature request on our backlog but I can’t give you a timeframe on when we will work on that.

OK, thanks for letting us know anyway.

Almost 3 years later this topic still says solved, whereas it simply isn’t.
