When you visit wp-admin/plugin-editor.php without any plugins installed, WP immediately bails with wp_die():

There are no plugins installed on this site.

It should instead:

  1. Present a normal admin page, complete with admin navigation. Or
  2. Not present the menu item to begin with.

We wouldn't want to call get_plugins() on every admin page load just to hide the menu item, see [14299].

27067.patch turns the wp_die() message into a regular admin page with header and footer.

In 27506:

Present a normal admin page when bailing out of the Plugin Editor screen. Fixes #27067. Props SergeyBiryukov.

I replaced the error text in Sergey's patch with the error text used on the regular Plugins listing screen to avoid introducing a new string.

#6 @SergeyBiryukov

The string was not new, but removing it in favor of the one used on the regular Plugins screen makes sense.
