Ah, yes, you're right. It only updates the base images, it doesn't try to check
if Mesa builds or not. As it only updates the packages, and we are using an LTS
distro in the base, hopefully it shouldn't break the build too many times. And
if this happens, next push in Mesa will expose the problem.

We have been using approach for several months in our side, and so far we never
had this situation. But yes, could happen.
