Here goes my two cents...

The approach suggested in the bug title is ”[...] automatically install
**missing** packages” (emphasis mine). That means that packages would not
be upgraded/updated, and the issue you mention would be a non-issue.

TL;DR: Only missing packages would be installed when running the script
automatically in the bots.

We would still manually update the bots for package updates/upgrades.
