wordpress form not saving or updating

i have been looking for a bug in my plugin am working on for days now and i haven’t gotten any explanation that can solve my problem. the objective of the plugin is to save an array of options to the database using the update_option. unfortunately when the submit button is clicked, it refreshes to the same page and nothing happens or saves to options table in WordPress. no error either, although, i noticed the message notifiers is also not called either when i click reset or submit. i am hoping someone can point out what i am missing or not doing right,am fairly new to WordPress development.

code:

global $pluginmename, $shortname, $options;
$pluginmename = “Fego-edu CPanel”;
$shortname = “fcp”;
