Updating Python base packages on Azure MI - can it be done?


When MLS is set up on an Azure SQL Server Managed Instance ( compatibility level 150 ) , there are are whole batch of python packages that are installed.

I know I can add or remove packages via ADS , but these appear to be packages not part of the base install.

Is it possible to upgrade some of the base packages like Alabaster etc?

We have power users who are always wanting the latest and greatest, and at some stage I know they are going to eventually ask for a package that needs the base packages upgraded to a higher version. Now on our existing on premises SQL 2017 boxes this is an easy fix, but for a SQL 2019 MI its more difficult.

Thanks in advance.
