I developed a forked version of the Understrap theme for a project I completed. The theme has since been used in about 300 sites. Recently we found a bug relating to a plugin used that the developer has been unable to resolve after more than a year of requests. The solution is to uninstall that plugin and install an alternate plugin.
My question relates to the theme update mechanism, I used this library but I'm not sure if it is possible to deactivate the existing buggy plugin and install the alternate plugin via the update?
Using the update would obviously make it easier to roll out the change
