#39374: Update plugin translations immediately when updating plugin

 Often when I run infinitewp to check for updates, I find plugins that
 haven't auto-updated yet, so I quickly manually update them from iwp. When
 I rescan my sites, many have translation updates, which are probably for
 the plugins that just upgraded, as they weren't there before.

 Idea: why not immediately check and update translations after a plugin

 I can see no reason not to, esp. as the translation is a "data" component
 and nothing executable (until someone uses a translation for a buffer
 overflow, but then again, with auto-updating plugins there are bigger
 risks than that...)
