I figured it out somehow.. Syntax of update_field(): update_field($field_key, $value, $post_id) MY MISTAKE: I was using the wrong parameter for the $post_id which i thought was the Term Id of the custom taxonomy term. CORRECT USAGE: rather than using term id ($term_id in my question), one should use a string with the taxonomy preppended to the $term_id ie $post_id = $taxonomy.'_'.$term_id for eg: if your custom taxonomy is foo and the term id is 123 then : $post_id = foo_123 Hope this is helpful for someone. This is the first time I'm asking/answering a question here.
