 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.
