This issue is not solved. With my hosting environment, I have no problem updating dozens of other plugins, several of which are NOT hosted with WordPress, such as Gravity Forms, and have never had issues auto-updating plugins.
We can gladly set up a hosting environment here and give ACF’s devs access so they can take a look and attempt to troubleshoot this issue. I know I’m not the first to offer this, has a dev at ACF taken anyone up on the offer yet, in order to look into this further?
