Error on the main Plesk page (and pretty much every other page):
PLESK_INFO: Warning: You are currently operating within the grace period of your product license. To update your product license, select the Retrieve Keys option on the License Management page.
However if Retrieve Keys button is pressed on the
page, the key is updated fine.
The error comes back on the next key update date.

Plesk Daily Maintenance task consists of many different parts. The part which is responsible for retrieving keys is called
and its command line is:
# /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun “/usr/local/psa/admin/plib/DailyMaintainance/task-script.php” UpdateKeys ‘–period=daily’
To ensure that Daily Maintenance task is present:
# stat /etc/cron.daily/50plesk-daily && md5sum /etc/cron.daily/50plesk-daily

Check that cron is running:
# service cron status
cron (pid 24250) is running…
for Cron or
# service crond status
crond (pid 24250) is running…
For further debugging, it is possible to enable debug logging (without SQL query log) and run the task manually with output redirection like this:
# /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/DailyMaintainance/script.php > ~/dm.out 2>&1
After some time, check
and search for the following string (or its substring):
Task run Update keys: /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun "/usr/local/psa/admin/plib/DailyMaintainance/task-script.php" UpdateKeys '--period=daily'
