We had to do that sometimes - because many patches were / are applied to
existing code (lot of bug fixes)
Actually patrick Lukusa @odoo asked us to do so.

What is problematic is that I can't use the Theme that I have bought from odoo
Beside that nothing is really problematic.

I was asked to update web modules in order to be able to upload the theme -
apparently newer modules would allow me to use the theme.

This is what I am intending to do.
And I still have no clue how to move away from web module… ? Updating
DB didn't help… ??

What am I supposed to do in order to get a newer version of a given module ?

I am not trying to update "at all costs" - we have automated DB backup so we
can rollback if needed.
But when I buy something, I intend to use It.

You are writing to Grégory Bernard from ToDoo company.
I generally don't publish my name on public lists ;-)
