What do you mean by "Python-specific executable"?

Your Python code can go anywhere if you package it up in, say, a .deb
or .rpm, and then just depend on a Python interpreter of appropriate
version. You can allow your users to manage their own updates so long
as it's within the dependency range you have chosen to support. I
don't understand how "run on any device" relates to "automatically
update the Python interpreter", but it's still a solved problem: *use
a package manager*.
