      I'd put this down to user error, but the outcome was confusing...

      Started up a local instance of of Jenkins, went to /pluginManager/available, searched/filtered on a keyword, hit Enter (just because it seemed there were more matches than expected and forgot the results were dynamic)

      The installer moved to the install screen and proceeds to install "nothing". Technically that's correct since I did not select any plugins, but I'm left with the impression of, "What just happened? What did I just install?"


      This is validated in the jenkins logs:

      I can confirm the same outcome if you simply navigate to the /pluginManager/available page and hit Enter.

      It would be my expectation, either nothing happened, or a more user friendly dialog appears advising the user to choose plugin(s) to install before proceeding.
