Since I don't know which packages you use I cannot comment on that.
Generally, though, PDFTeX can produce DVI output as well.  In fact
PDFTeX is used for both PDF and DVI output in modern TeX systems.

Okay.  Emacs is leveraging a lot of tools which are easily available
on UNIX-like systems and which require some effort to get on Windows,
grep and find being one example.  With respect to PDF viewers in
particular it seems that the suppliers don't consider the userbase
requiring a refresh feature large or important enough to implement it.

What I wrote applies to any package management system, not just that
of Ubuntu.
