Theme update identifies falsely child-theme

just created a child-theme with the name "sigma" (child theme created through wp cli saffold). WordPress update tool marks it as needed update which is strange for a child theme in general, let alone a brand new one.

as it turns out, the update tool looks for name and version, comparing them to already published themes on

but it doesnt validate if these actually exist on my wordpress installation, neither sees the diference between a theme and a child-theme.
