Forced Auto Updates
By default, WordPress will not apply automatic background updates if it detects a version control system (like Git or Subversion) in the WordPress directory or any of its parent directories.
WordPress does this because it assumes that if version control systems are present, the site owners have their own system in place for managing updates, and WordPress doesn’t want to mess with that.
However, minor updates can contain critical security vulnerability fixes, and those aforementioned site owners may consider the benefit of having minor releases automatically updated by WordPress greater than the risks of waiting too long to apply those updates themselves.
If that sounds like you, then you may wish to consider installing this option-free plugin.
Just activate when you need it.
Perhaps before a “disconnected” vacation when you don’t want to run the risk of a security update being released during it, and having no way of applying said update until your return.
Deactivate it when you don’t.
