#50459 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Enable auto-updates link shown fo Must-Use plugins

As Must-Use plugins can't be updated, I suppose that auto-update won't work either. If you confirm, then showing the "Enable auto-updates" link isn't useful (and can be confusing).

In 48149:

Security: Don't display the plugin auto-update options for mu-plugins or dropins.

They can't be updated, so we shouldn't be showing the buttons.

Fixes #50459.

Props Chouby, audrasjb, pbiron.
