UWP application is not updating properly via sideloading

UWP application is not updatingproperly via sideloading if we change only the build number in the version of the application. If we change minor version number, its updating. Any idea on this issue?

    Do you increase your build number like this screenshot?

    I test it my computer, no matter increase the minor version or increase the build number, then install the new application will have update

    I have two version :App5.UWP_1.0.2.0_Test and App5.UWP_1.1.3.0_Test

    Firstly, I install App5.UWP_1.0.2.0_Test, then I install App5.UWP_1.1.3.0_Test it work as normal.

    @LeonLu In this example, you've increased both minor version and build number(digits 2 & 3). But in my case I've increased only build number(digit 3). It was not updating the app properly. Can you try by increasing the build number alone?
