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.
