Not sure what you mean by "installing any binary package", but the way
I normally install a package is "apt install ....", and the "keeping it
up-to-date" is done mostly automatically by updating the whole system on
a regular basis (including via the `unattended-upgrade` package).

Indeed, it sucks just about as much.

No, I'm comparing to something that's directly supported by
my distribution (Debian).
