Maybe broken because Cache. Try to run with manually.

bin/magento cache:flush
bin/magento cron:remove
bin/magento cron:install
bin/magento cron:run --group index

Let's check your job name (custom_autoordercancel_cron) in the job_code.cron_schedule db and check the Status.

  • already tried this but no success. Commented Dec 8, 2022 at 2:39
  • Are you check Cron.log file ? Commented Dec 8, 2022 at 2:47
  • yes no traces there Commented Dec 8, 2022 at 2:53
