Difference between updating package with apm or Atom


Is there any difference between updating outdated packages with apm or through Atom’s update view (except for the UI of course)?


Both settings-view and apm upgrade use apm install to install/update packages. I think the only difference is that Atom’s update view also deactivates and unloads outdated packages before calling apm install (?). If you do an apm upgrade without any active atom windows there shouldn’t be a difference.
