If this works well, then it could be useful to change the message shown at
the end of the installation process, as Rudolf already suggested in this

By the way, you seem to imply that [lmtx path]/bin should be in the PATH
during updates. I didn't know that and I'm sure I've updated several times
without it: I have different environments to be able to switch between
different versions of context (lmtx, the old one, that from texlive...), I
never check which one I'm in before updating lmtx and the installer does
not complain.
