I cannot for the life of me see why adding a warning that proceeding
with the installation will require updating MikTeX, and giving the user
the option to abort the installation, could cause any problems at all.
If there's a worry that this will confuse some users, then we could add
text that says something like: If you do not use LaTeX outside of LyX,
then it is safe for you to proceed.
