As designed There is no 2-step authentication for install/upgrade page.

Hi. I have enabled 2-step authentication for my admin account, however there is missing 2-step auth for install/upgrade page ( and is asking only for a password instead. There is a "do a fresh install" and "Rebuild master data" option on that page, not sounds good for me.
This is very much intentional, as 2FA could block the ability to complete an upgrade and leave a site in an unusable state.

The master data rebuild generally doesn't do anything (unless something has gone wrong already). Reinstalling requires manually removing a file from the file system and does not depend on a user account (it can't) -- that's just a link in case that's what you're after (clicking it will tell you the file needs to be deleted).
