Hello magento 2 experts!!!
I instal magento2 on ubuntu and it works great. I can go into back end and update currency from fixer.io. They always update when i do it manually. I set the right option to update at 1:00:00 am each day, enable service but nothing gets updated. When I run cron manually using
sudo php bin/magento cron:run
I get Cron run by scedule so it think all is ok but still no update.
What need i do to update by itself thank you
Did you check at the cron_schedule table to see if there is some special message?
Did you found something into the *cron.log files?
The log has these does that mean it should be working?
The log shows run at 7 36 the time in backend for update is 1 00 am
[2017-10-31 07:36:24] main.INFO: Add of item with id Magento_CurrencySymbol::system_currency was processed  
[2017-10-31 07:36:24] main.INFO: Add of item with id Magento_CurrencySymbol::system_currency_rates was processed  
[2017-10-31 07:36:24] main.INFO: Add of item with id Magento_CurrencySymbol::system_currency_symbols was processed  
Now I know where the logs are, could I ask if you expect to see the values stamped in them of the old and new currencies? Today I check and there is no update to them.
My suggestion was, basically, to try to find some error.
Maybe you can test 2 other things:
Execute the cronjobs manually:
Here you'll find more information.
And also you can take a look into the database to the cron_schedule table to see if all times the result was successful or not.
