How to update a custom field in all posts with the value of another custom field in the same post?

I try to get the value of the source field ‘enddate’, save it in the variable $enddatevar and write it in the target field ‘promote’ in the loop by activating the plugin, but the code I added to this working code doesn’t work. Any help would be appreciated.

<?php
/*
Plugin Name: Update MetaData for Posts
Description: Enable this plugin to update the metadata for all the posts
Author: JackJohansson
Version: 1.0
Author URI: http://example.com
*/
// Run the loop when the plugin is activated
register_activation_hook(__FILE__, ‘update_my_metadata’);
function update_my_metadata(){
$args = array(
‘post_type’ => ‘touren’, // Only get the posts
‘post_status’ => ‘publish’, // Only the posts that are published
‘posts_per_page’ => -1 // Get every post
);
$posts = get_posts($args);
foreach ( $posts as $post ) {
// Run a loop and update every meta data
//code added to original code
$enddatevar = get_post_meta( $post_id, $key = ‘enddate’, $single = false);
//end of code added
//’meta_value’ used in original code replaced with ‘$enddatevar’ below
update_post_meta( $post->ID, ‘promote’, ‘$enddatevar’ );
}
}
?>
