My Question or Issue
The songs on my on repeat playlist have not changed for several months, even though I have been listening to other music. The playlist updates, I.E. 16 hours ago, appears next to a song on PC, but the songs themselves have not changed. I have been purposefully not listening to the playlist, and listening to another which I have created in the hopes that On Repeat will eventually update display the songs I am currently listening to, alas, this has not happened. This issue is the same regardless of the device.
Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop and for your feedback.
Note that the algorithms which determine how these playlists are set up get updated every 5 day, but not necessarily every time the same amount of songs get changed up. The time it takes for the changes to appear and the number of titles that get affected may vary from user to user. Also, songs that have been repeated multiple times over a longer time-frame don't get automatically removed in favor of those that have been on repeat more recently. All in all, the more new and different content you play repeatedly, the higher the chance is for it to come up in these playlists sooner.
@kilaneten whether or not a specific playlist is liked shouldn't have an affect on update of the Repeat Rewind and On Repeat playlists. If you could share an URI of the playlist you mentioned, we'd be happy to investigate this further. This page explains how to find an URI in Spotify.
Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!
As @Mihail has previously explained, this playlist gets updated and populated with new songs once the algorithm has gathered enough data on your listening activity.
We'd recommend listening to more of your favorite music through the Search option. If you listen to music primary through playlists like Daily Mix, your other recommendations playlists might not update as often.
Hope you find this info helpful.
