In 6027:

Plugin Directory: Improve terminology used when referring to active installations of a plugin.

"Install" is not a noun, and while it might be acceptable to use the verb as a noun, it is not correct. Using the correct noun, "installation", increases clarity, especially for non-native English speakers.

Props Ipstenu, presskopp.
Fixes #3062.
