Google Local Business Center Updates Not Working?

There is an unusual spike in complaints in the Google Maps Help forum that the Google Local Business Center is not functioning correctly. People are saying that although they are updating the information in the local business center, those updates are not being reflected in Google Maps.

Typically, updating the local business center would reflect the change in Google Maps "almost instantly" said one local SEO expert. But now, it is taking days and nothing has been updated yet. A few local SEOs are complaining in the thread, which makes me think that there is some type of bug with the Google Local Business center or there is some type of lag.

Another local SEO said:

There is big problem with updating. I work as Local Business SEO consultant. I tried to update some of my clients listing, such as the web address and title. Google hasn't updated those changes. Before it used to take less than hour to get updated.

Google has not confirmed that there is an issue. Linda from Google, did say that "edits you made in LBC should be reflected immediately." So I am not sure why they have not been updated for these local SEOs.
