Steps to reproduce

We have created an extension for Edge for sideloading in an Enterprise environment.
The extension installs correctly and works on clean install
The extension has been updated to a new version and we want to create an upgrade process.
We run a powershell script to remove the current package and install the new package
Get-AppxPackage -Name b258c370-bd1f-45e1-9282-830e08ac639e | Remove-appxpackage
Add-AppxPackage “Path to Appx file”

The package updates and new files are put in the WindowsApps folder, but Edge still has the old version of the extension displayed, and is not getting the new version number of the manifest.
