But how about the Teams Machine-Wide Installer, is there a need to update the Installer regularly?

If I download the Teams Machine-Wide Installer again 3 months later from

I have downloaded another / newer version. If I run the installer 3 months later again on the same computer, I have two Installations of the Machine-Wide Installer. (see Screenshot)
