Power BI Scheduled Refresh won't even start

Hello all,


I have a dashboard in Power BI with a daily refresh set up, as per image below:


I have two schedules, one for 8am and another for 9am (my local time). However, neither of them even start to refresh. The Last run dates are from manual refreshes I'm doing every day. I'm asking for help because I have 6 Power BI files that need to be refreshed at early morning every day and I can't count with the automatic refresh.


Below is the schedule configuration:


I appreciate any help. Regards,
