Does Teferi, Time Raveler's static ability, which limits opponents' spells to sorcery 'speed', stop Enduring Ideal's Epic ability which functions during the upkeep?

    When MTG uses a rule-defined keyword (e.g. cast), it only refers to that specific keyword and no other. copy is not cast.

No, it doesn't stop it. Teferi says:

Each opponent can cast spells only any time they could cast a sorcery.

(emphasis mine)

But copying a spell is different from casting it:

706.10. To copy a spell, activated ability, or triggered ability means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isn’t cast and a copy of an activated ability isn’t activated.

Therefore, Teferi doesn't affect the Epic ability.
