Iʼm not sure what the manual would say?

"When doing package-list-packages and installing some unspecified
packages, do that from a 'clean' emacs"

(and ordinary users would not read that section of the manual anyway).

What might be better is a warning when upgrading packages that the
package is already loaded, and recommending the 'clean'
approach. Perhaps that could be a per-package opt-in?
