You had the correct filter the first time “acf/save_post” because you will be working with multiple values. The other field may or may not have been saved when the acf/update_field hook happens for this field.
You cannot update a field value simply by setting a variable equal to something, you must call update_field() to have ACF save that value to the DB.
