Auto Plugin & Core Updates Not Working For Custom Theme


I have a custom WordPress theme I’ve developed and have included the following lines in my wp-config.php in hopes to automate plugin and core updates:

define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', true );
add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_true' );
add_filter( 'auto_update_theme', '__return_true' );

I’ve let it process for about a week now but the plugins that have available updates aren’t updating. Do I need to include anything additional in my theme’s functions.php to initiate these automatic updates?

Additionally, does anyone know how quickly these updates take place when a new plugin or core update is released? Or is it essentially instantaneous?

Thanks for your help!
