Force Updates will attempt to automatically update your plugins, core, themes, and translations. This is useful for debugging and checking that automatic updates are working as intended.

If you have Safe Mode (Premium) or Delayed Updates (Premium) enabled, this will affect Force Updates and how it's run.
