> Metastore's update service wrongly strips partition column stats from the 
> cache in an attempt to update them. The issue may go unnoticed since missing 
> stats do not lead to query failures. 
> However, they can alter significantly the query plan affecting performance. 
> Moreover, they lead to flakiness since some times the stats are present and 
> sometimes are not leading to a query that has a different plan overtime. 
> Normally missing elements from the cache shouldn't be a correctness problem 
> since we can always fallback to the raw stats. Unfortunately, there are many 
> interconnections with other parts of the code (e.g., code to obtain aggregate 
> statistics) where this contract breaks.
