No drama whatsoever for 10 years or so when downloading from TUG and
upgrading (annually).  But then I have a shell script to do this for me.

I have now installed BasicTeX on one of my boxes as a homebrew cask and
will see what happens when the annual upgrade comes round.

Never mind that I don't know what upstream tex is nor package installed
