Yes, this is difficult to get right. Updating a package oin disk should
always be a choice, not a forced action. And opening from a repository
when the package is on disk, should open the one on disk.

Especially confusing is that if you open the package via Known Packages
you still get the package on disk when it is available. Maybe an
intermediary panel is needed to make this clear. Otherwise the fact that
you have just opened from the repository and what you see is not the
repository is confusing.
