My muscle memory says that 'g' always refreshes (possibly learnt from vc
mode, ibuffer mode and may be other modes).

Unfortunately in Package Menu Mode it is bound to revert-buffer and it
*doesn't* refresh the menu. For example, if I update 'package-archives'
with a new repo, archive-contents of the newly added repo doesn't get

'r' works as expected though.

May be 'g' should do what 'r' is right now doing?

Btw, what could revert-buffer possibly mean in package menu?

| Major mode for browsing a list of packages.
| Letters do not insert themselves; instead, they are commands.
