When using update_field() where a value has not been previously saved you need to use the field key and not the field name. get_field_object() using the field name where a value has not been previously saved will also return no value.
When you are working with fields, any field type, where a value may not already exist you should always use the field key rather than the field name. This is explained on this page https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/update_field/

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
