Repls keep stopping to update python packages

How do I stop Repl.it from stopping my repls just to update packages and restart? I kinda need to keep them running.

You can't. To save up space, (packages take up a lot of space), repl.it has to re-install packages.

Also, did you know that repl.it uses multiple containers to save up costs as well? When you go to a different container, the packages don't carry through.

I don't know what a container is? I just let the repl run so I never encountered their use.

Also one of my repls installs way too many packages that I depreciated in the project, how do I update the poetry to rescan my code for imported modules? This will at least minimize the loading time for installing unnessessary packages.

a container is basically like a folder, but more like an OS in itself.
Unfortunately, you can't really 'minimize' it, you could go to https://repl.it/feedback to have them cache some packages so they don't have to really take too long to be installed. I know like flask is, for example
