Inkscape update issue?

After PC wake-up from sleep, I am getting a Windows Installer pop-up: "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed."
Process Explorer tells me that it was started with the command line
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe" /X{81922150-317E-4BB0-A31D-FF1C14F707C5} /qb
Googling {81922150-317E-4BB0-A31D-FF1C14F707C5} leads me to https://inkscape.org/forums/questions/how-to-prevent-inkscape-from-using-the-style-attribute/ which indicates that {81922150-317E-4BB0-A31D-FF1C14F707C5} refers to Inkscape (at a much earlier version).
I was not touching Inkscape in any way, so I must assume that msiexec.exe was triggered by Patch My PC's Home Installer.
Starting the Home Installer window it shows on the left pane Inkscape outdated (red) and trying to update to Inkscape 1.3(x64) . On the right pane, selecting Uninstaller, it shows Inkscape 1.2.2 being installed since 05/26/2023, which is true: Inkscape itself says it is Inkscape 1.2.2 (732a01da63, 2022-12-09) .
Is Patch My PC associating an outdated ID {81922150-317E-4BB0-A31D-FF1C14F707C5} with version 1.2.2?
