That would be the most desirable method but, I believe (don't take my word for this) the Installer app is smart enough to only install changes. You might not even have to re-run `updmap-user` since the distribution is for the same year as before.

TLU will have no changes from the pretest repository and may lead to errors if you try to use a regular repository.

Good Luck,
