Private extensions can't be updated

Description of the issue:
I’m working on a Chrome extension designed for a select group of users and have released it exclusively to testers via the Chrome Web Store. While the extension worked seamlessly when installed on Brave it’s not updating as anticipated. Neither the automatic updates nor the manual “update” click seem to be effective after I’ve made recent changes.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Get some sample or template chrome extension, with some version number (example 0.1)
  2. Publish the chrome extension in the chrome webstore, using “private” visibility
  3. Add a trusted tester account
  4. Use the trusted tester account to install the extension from the chrome webstore on brave
  5. Publish a new version of the extension (example 0.2)
  6. Click update in the brave://extensions (developer mode enabled)

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Getting a message “Extensions updated”, but the extension itself is not updated (stays on 0.1)

Expected result:
Getting a message “Extensions updated”, and the extension is updated to version 0.2

Reproduces how often:
Always

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Mac OSX
macOS Version 13.6 (Build 22G120)

Additional Information:
Tested on mac, linux and windows.
