At this time, @installed tends to trigger unsolvable blockers during
updates , so it's not really usable for general purpose updates
unless you want users to go back to the days of solving blocker by
themselves even though the package manager is capable of doing it
Also, @installed pulls in slot atoms just for the installed slots, so it
won't pull in new slots like un-slotted atoms would.
