What's Causing This Error
The error "dynamodb table not updating" can be caused by a variety of issues, such as:

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It
To solve this error, you can take the following steps:
- Double-check the format of the update expressions and attribute values sent to the DynamoDB service to ensure they are properly formatted.
- Check the provisioned write capacity on the table and increase it if necessary.
- Consider implementing exponential backoff to handle retries for failed requests.
- Check the IAM role associated with the request to ensure it has the necessary permissions to update the table.
