Then that should be a feature request in fullpkg. (Here you go: https://labs.parabola.nu/issues/403)
> updating also packages that will be removed before build.
Then run `librechroot clean-pkgs` before running `librechroot update`.

I think it's not unreasonable to require packagers to update their chroot when it needs to be.
Why I don't want to add this back in: fullpkg/treepkg are actually a good example of why this *shouldn't* be added. You don't want to run -Syu before *every* package is built. You run it once at the beginning. Perhaps fullpkg/treepkg should do that for you.
A feature that I would be welcome to implementing is warning if there are uninstalled updates, what do you think?
Bug #378: [libremakepkg] reintroduce -u
It's needed for fullpkg and mips64el builds depending on previously built updates.
HOOKPREBUILD doesn't solve it: it's run only by treepkg, not fullpkg nor libremakepkg; it would run before cleaning the chroot: updating also packages that will be removed before build.
Why not change it for fullpkg only: libremakepkg -u is faster and can be used for toolchain updates and other builds where the dependency tree of fullpkg is wrong (updating packages to the ones built is needed for toolchain updates).
