That's so true.. yet isn't that manual installation via apt-get does some
things slightly different than installing via app manager, hence sometimes
things get broken or device isn't able to upgrade to the next major PR1.x

Not sure what exactly I am talking about here, to be honest, but I'm fairly
sure I've seen it somewhere that installing apps via apt-get might cause
trouble in long run.
