 It is expected that this works. You can also "jam @your-profile update-
 packages" to update your Haiku image from source.

 The flakiness with live-updates however is that Package FS unpublishes
 files from running applications and also data files. This triggers node-
 monitoring events, so that for example app_server unloads font files. I am
 not sure what more serious problems it may cause, but see comment:5.
