Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 On a related note,
 this] is not a correct usage of plural forms:
 Singular: 1 plugin found
 Plural: Showing %s-%s of %s plugins

 In some languages, the first form is used not just for 1, but also for 21,
 31, 41, etc. `1 plugin found` only makes sense for 1. For 21, 31, etc.,
 the number should be included in the string, but it's still the first

 Currently we can't use the single form and are forced to use the `Showing
 %s-%s of %s plugins` form in all cases.

 It could be fixed with something like this:
 if ( $plugin_count > 1 ) {
         $message = sprintf( _n( 'Showing %s-%s of %s plugins', 'Showing
 %s-%s of %s plugins', $plugin_count ), ... );
 } else {
         $message = __( '1 plugin found' );
