Update jquery form 2.2.4 to 3.6.0

Hello,
We are using a lot of packages based on jquery 1.11.11/2.2.4 and we would like to upgrade jquery to 3.6.0 (or to remove jquery dependies when possible).

It seems we run jquery 2.2.4

console.log(jQuery.fn.jquery);
2.2.4

When we run meteor update we obtains this

Newer versions of the following indirect dependencies are available:
 * jquery 1.11.11 (3.0.0 is available) 

In the code : meteor/package.js at ffcfa5062cf1bf8a64ea64fef681ffcd99fe7939 Β· meteor/meteor Β· GitHub
I can read :

// Note that you can meteor npm install jquery (any version) into your
// application’s node_modules directory, and the meteor/jquery package
// will use that version instead of 1.12.1.

But is this going to break all other packages depending on jquery 1.11.1 ?

I read this thread : Replace Meteor base Jquery for the NPM one - #12 by evolross
But again I am not sure how to apply the advices.

Any advises on how to update jquery ?

This is an extract from meteor list --tree

UPDATE :
I have added jquery@3.0.0! in the file .meteor/packages (with exclamation mark)
Now meteor list --tree returns :

But still

console.log(jQuery.fn.jquery);
2.2.4

Then when I perform meteor npm update --save jquery : I am still stuck to 2.2.4

If I do meteor npm update --save jquery@3.6.0 some of the plugins does not work anymore like datetimepicker, datatables but some other work like toastr.

Do you know how to progress on this ?

Not that it helps but I’ve got the same problem with our project.
