Comment (by flixos90):

 In [changeset:"40404"]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="40404"
 Multisite: Introduce an `upgrade_network` capability.

 Prior to this change, a mix of `is_super_admin()` calls and
 `manage_network` capability checks was used to determine whether the
 current user could upgrade the network. With this changeset a dedicated
 capability is introduced that allows more granular handling.

 Props dhanendran for the original patch.
 Fixes #39205. See #37616.
