Smoothen Plugin Updates

When about to select plugins to be updated, there's the button 'Update Plugins' (2 times). Having selected nothing I can click on it and it will take a few seconds making requests ending up in an error message.

I propose to either:

  1. Inactivate the button(s) whenever selected plugins count is 0
  2. Change the button to "Update all plugins", making it "auto-select" all possible one's OR Add a new button to do so (eventually combined with 1.)
  3. Something like that

The text above the button clearly states that you must check the plugins you wish to update. I’m not sure there’s a clear benefit over the current behavior.

@afragen Why not deactivate the button unless minimum 1 plugin is selected? The error message will appear only after some seconds waiting time and then on top of the page. I don't call this user friendly.

@Presskopp it is working as designed. The error message appears after the button press because that’s when the error occurs.

By all means please re-open this issue if, in fact, you believe it to be a bug.

This ticket is not filed as a bug. It's a valid enhancement. Just as good as any other. It can be closed as wontfix or maybelater, but not invalid.
