IMO it’s best to use your package manager(s) where possible. I’ve had issues in the past when using a program’s inbuilt updating mechanism. The latter might cause dependency issues.
Example is the VirtualBox updater (albeit this was on a Mint system) taking out a load of packages required to start an X session! (Fixed in a TTY by reinstalling the stuff it took out. I had logged the entire process which made it easy).
