While asking about installing dependencies is a good thing in general, in
this case the dependencies were already installed (which is probably

In this case, the "upgrade" of the dependencies wasn't even due to new
versions - it was just a change in the "universal" variants.  Although
asking before switching variants might make sense, in that case it should
be more informative about what it's actually proposing to change.
