Mark a Python plugin without an as broken
Browse files Browse the repository at this point in the history
utils.findPlugins() checks for the existence of an which
results in an attempt to enable a plugin without an being
blocked with the only notification being a message in the Plugins log:

WARNING    Plugin "<name>" is not compatible with this version of QGIS.
             It will be disabled.

This is not very informative, especially because it is the same message
used for a metadata version mismatch.

Adding this check to Plugins.getInstalledPlugin(), which already
duplicates the metadata checks from utils.findPlugins(), results in the
plugin being marked as broken in the Plugins dialog.
