FYI – from @dd32 ‘s comment on core P2:

Localised (non-english) installs are currently not receiving Background Updates.

3.7.1 Background updates will be enabled for localised builds shortly, there’s just been some unexpected WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ infrastructure work that needs to happen first.

They’ll be enabled in the near future (next few days for sure) but in the meantime you can either update manually, or, if you’re not being affected by any of the bugs fixed in it (there’s no security fixes in this releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software.) simply wait a few extra days for it to kick in.

Let’s not freak out 🙂 The best thing we can do for the users with localized install is to provide correct information about the situation.

Also from the same thread:

Background updates occur at 7am/7pm Local time (whatever the timezone your blog is set to).

Background updates are being rolled out at a slow pace to all sites, it may be a few hours before your site has been given the autoupdate offering, and then it’ll wait until the next 7am/7pm timeslot before it attempts the update.

You’ll receive an email when the autoupdate completes (or if it encounters an error which prevents it from updating)

#3-7, #update
