wp-cli update plugin update deployment process

Extremely happy with wp-cli so far. One issue: I can’t seem to update plugins locally, commit the changes to the remote repo and see the plugin status as updated on the remote server. This deployment process seems correct to me (git learner), but it seems to me now that updating the plugins via wp-cli or the GUI makes database changes also? This would explain why deploying changed files does not change the status of the plugin on the remote server. Is there a process in wp-cli that I am missing that updates the database after deploying plugin updates?

  • `git diff` doesn't show any changes? Why not?
  • Can't Push Rails Project to Heroku
  • cvs2git: Possibility to keep mapping from CVS revision numbers to Git revision Hash
  • Is it possible to set a Git config for all users in a system?
  • Git show all branches (but not stashes) in log
  • git-p4: Can't Map File error
  • Does git allow for “bare” submodules?
  • Git always pulls files that I cant edit
  • git gui - can it be made to display UTF16?
  • Why is the git command to switch branches named “git checkout”?
  • why does git allow remote tags to move, or why you can't use git-tag for atomic test-and-set
  • Can git do linear commit deltas during garbage collecton?

    You are correct that the list of plugin updates is stored in the database.

    wp-cli is designed to work on localhost. It makes no changes to a remote site.
