Comment (by Otto42):

 > As WP.org theme repo doesn't hold any child themes it would make sense
 to check if the suggested update is for a child theme and avoid it as it's
 most likely an unintended name clash.

 Umm, there are many child themes in the repo, and if you install one,
 WordPress will detect it and auto-install the parent for it too.
