Rest API – How to update wordpress plugins in my own maintenance application?

I have an internal application for managing clients and their websites. Now the idea is to add maintenance for WordPress websites inside the application, but I can’t figure out how to do it.

I’ve looked into the standard WordPress API but I don’t see any endpoint for updating a plugin, only retrieving the details and setting the status of the plugin to active or inactive.

Is there an API that I miss? Or does anyone have an idea how to do it?
