Updating Open Source Packages on the IBM i

Is there a streamlined way to update open software on the IBM i that combines the packages updated in using RPM (I use the Access Client Solutions for this) and other methods which are language specific such as PIP and NPM?

For instance, PIP shows both python packages installed by using RPM and PIP but the packages installed using RPM should only be installed with RPM not PIP. This can make it confusing to manage packages and update them effectively.
