This flow will scan all your flows and alert you if there are any updates. It uses your author ID to determine whether to check each flow for new ratings and downloads, or for a new version.
For any flows you have uploaded, it will post a notification if there are any new ratings or downloads. For any you have downloaded, it will post a notification if there is a new version. Tap the notification to go to the flow's community page.
The premium version (https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/31060) includes just one purely cosmetic change: a toast at the end showing total downloads, ratings, and updates. If you love that feature (and who wouldn't?), you can save four blocks by hardcoding your author ID, which will give you room to add it.

This flow does not loop, although there's no reason you can't add that functionality if you want it. You could take out the "Notification cancel" block (not 𝘢𝘣𝘴𝘰𝘭𝘶𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 necessary) and add a "Delay" or "Time await" block and still keep the flow at 30 blocks. I use a flow scheduler (https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/30720), but that requires premium.

If you don't know your author ID, this flow (among others) will help you find it:

Finally, thank you to Drew Chapin whose post in the forum showed me how to perform the prestidigitation that cleaned up my code and saved a block:

Update: Reworked scanning of uploaded flows. This flow will now scan all your uploaded flows, even if you delete them locally. This required more blocks, so bells n whistles have been moved to a premium version.

Version 7: Cleaned up code and saved a block, which allowed addition of progress bar (Credit to cefadrom MC (👤 User statistics [V3])).
