CakePHP 2.3.1 updateAll query not working

I am not able to update records in CakePHP 2.3.1

Query:

$this -> Staff -> updateAll(array('Staff.last_login' => date('Y-m-d H:i:s')), array('Staff.id' => $staff['Staff']['id']));


Error:

Error: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use

Answer

See http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/models/saving-your-data.html#model-updateall-array-fields-array-conditions :

The $fields array accepts SQL expressions. 
Literal values should be quoted manually using Sanitize::escape().

You can use

NOW()

But, in your case, it would also work with the quoting:

"'" . date('Y-m-d H:i:s') . "'"
