It's a package. It isn't in the basic image to be updated. Yes, it is
in the -full image but so far as I know updates to that are no
different than those for the -basic. I was under the impression that
packages included in -full are supposed to be updated via SM.

It's certainly possible I've missed something but in general my
expected path for updating VMMaker is to load the more recent version
from SM. For 3.8 or thereabouts I was planning on moving to using an
mcz package.
