Comment (by michel.weimerskirch):

 I tried again. I still get the access denied error:
 Capabilities: http://picpaste.com/capabilities-AO0lxpOy.png
 Update page with changelog: http://picpaste.com/update-page-hV2boiJW.png

 The problem seems to be that in menu.php, "plugins.php" requires the
 "activate_plugins" option: {{{$submenu['plugins.php'][5]  = array(
 __('Installed Plugins'), 'activate_plugins', 'plugins.php' );}}} and
 plugin-install.php (which contains the update information) is a subpage of
 {{{$submenu['plugins.php'][10] = array( _x('Add New', 'plugin'),
 'update_plugins', 'plugin-install.php' );}}}

 Because of that, plugin-install.php also requires the "activate_plugins"
