Auto-scroll to error notice on failed inline updates (plugins/themes)

See a small UX issue in WordPress 4.6 on shiny updates.

In this case I noticed it on the network themes page when one theme has an update and that theme is below the fold (or view-port).

if the update has an error (of any kind), the response happens at the top of the page and a user would never know about the response message. I think in this case a forced scroll-to-top would be great or allow the shiny updates to show inline errors.

Hi @austyfrosty,

Thanks for this ticket! My apologies that it took so long to receive a response.

I am still able to reproduce this issue on the Themes Network Admin screen. I was also able to reproduce it on an individual site's theme page. On success, the same notice is being targeted and replaced, but that's not happening when there's an error.

I suspect this is not unique to multisite, and it may also occur for plugins.
