    Description

      Especially if we lag behind in core updates, we get big bunches of "unavailable" plugins and plugins we can't install due to missing dependencies.

      It would be nice, to be able to filter these out.

      (We have two local modified plugins, we DON'T want to update by accident - and the big bunch of available plugins makes these two rather "invisible"

          I like his idea too, especially as many users may now lag behind the during the big jump from Java 8 to 11 or still from the tables-to -divs issue (personally have an instance stuck 'cos of TFS plugin compatibility).

          I'd recommend incorporatng some sort of banner when the filter is active on the updates page to remind users the filter is filtering out incompatible updates, perhaps with special alert (ie: color ?) when those updates also contain security fixes that they are placing themselves at risk.

          Of course,t he problem is we need this retrofitted in to the already installed and obsolete releases we have installed on-Prem, not the new releases, which implicitly will be compatible with all plugins (weekly) and almost all (LTS).

          Perhaps there some sort of .css that canshread and be applied locally to filter them out?
