It’s possible that there is a setting in your functions.php file or a plugin that’s forcing the updates.
You could try using a plugin like Easy Updates Manager to control the updates: https://wordpress.org/plugins/stops-core-theme-and-plugin-updates/
Hi there Niall
I think I have found the issue, there appears to be in wp_content/mu-pulgins and file auto_update_themes_plugins.php. Removing this allows me to toggle successfully. I do not know how it got there.
<?php /** * @package auto_update_themes_plugins * @version 0.1 */ /* Plugin Name: auto_update_themes_plugins Description: automatically update themes and plugins Author: Callum D. Campbell Version: 0.1 */ /** * $Id: auto_update_themes_plugins.php 552 2015-03-13 12:23:09Z CallumCampbell $ * $AUTODEPLOY: root@admintools:/usr/local/provisioning/source/wordpress_components/wp-content/mu-plugins$ */ add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_true' ); add_filter( 'auto_update_theme', '__return_true' ); ?>
Thanks for helping!

You’re welcome! You can read more about Must-Use plugins (MU plugins) here: https://www.sitepoint.com/wordpress-mu-plugins/. It’s possible that your web host or something else installed the plugin by default when WordPress was installed.
