Comment(by dd32):

 There are some possible reasons why:

 1. Networked filesystem hasnt updated the changes to the node that the
 WordPress install is hosted on
 2. Directory that the plugin or plugin filename has changed
 3. That the SiteB's plugins.php page was loaded while the plugin didnt
 exist on the filesystem

 No matter what, you're likely to end up with bad race conditions when
 upgrading plugins if they're used by multiple installs.

 An option that was put forward for upgrading plugins in bulk, was to
 simply put the site in maintainence mode, if you've sharing WP_CONTENT_DIR
 instead of the plugins dir, then that would put all sites into
 maintainence mode i believe.. which could be an option instead.
