[bug] Undefined view variables creating addon Controller #906

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new Controller addon with php please make:controller AddonName
  2. Create meta.yaml
  3. View addon page in CP at /cp/addons/AddonName

Expected behaviour

The default (empty) index view would display with "Content"

Actual behaviour

PHP error Undefined variable: update_available (View: <snip>/statamic/resources/views/partials/nav-main.blade.php)

There are 3 variable errors - update_available, is_trial and is_unlicensed.

Adding those to the view data array resolves the issue (eg):
return $this->view('index', ['update_available' => false, 'is_trial' => true, 'is_unlicensed' => false]);

Alternatively removing the 2 partials lines @include('partials.nav-main') and @include('partials.alerts') from layout.blade.php also resolves the issue.

Obviously neither of these options is ideal. Grepping the code shows that you are sharing update_available in the Outpost Middleware, but presumably that isn't included for Addon Routes or something? The other 2 variables don't appear:

$ grep -rn "view()->share" *
statamic/core/Http/Middleware/Outpost.php:104:        view()->share('update_available', $this->outpost->isUpdateAvailable());

I just ran into this today running 2.1.17 in Homestead 0.5.0. Any additional info?
