Description

Following on from #3062.

I noticed the phrase This plugin has been closed for new installs in the plugin directory. Usage can be seen on https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-term-meta/.

This phrase should say This plugin has been closed for new installations.

In 7602:

Plugin Directory: Improve terminology used when referring to new 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 johnbillion.
Fixes #3756. See #3062.
