Comment (by soulseekah):

 Right now this is possible by doing:

 $bulk_activation = (new WP_Plugins_List_Table())->current_action() ==

 if ( ! $bulk_activation ) {
     /** Redirect, etc. */


 One obvious issue is that "activate-selected" might change as an action
 name in the future.

 Same can be done with 'deactivate-selected'.

 Just an idea.

 Another option is to check the function call backtrace, all the way up to
 `activate_plugin` and then one more step up to see if it's
 `activate_plugins` or not.

 A bit hacky, but will work, as well.
