  • Trueallow a newer version to be installed
    Falseprevent a newer version from being installed
  • AllowVersionUpdateFalse lets you call PacletInstall to ensure you have a copy of a given paclet, but not change anything on your system if you already have the paclet installed and a newer version happens to be available.
