Updater dependency checking blocks unrelated actions

Description

Not sure, but this might actually be two different bugs...

It is easiest to show with an example:

  • Turn on the "LOCI" update site. This will install slim_plugin.
  • Modify an unrelated JAR file such as bio-formats.
  • Try to upload the change bio-formats to the Fiji update site.

The Updater will present a dialog stating that the dependencies of slim-plugin are broken and need to be fixed. Click "Break dependency" for all actions. Afterwards, the upload of bio-formats will still fail due to errors relating to slim-plugin.

Of course, we can repair the slim-plugin dependencies to avoid these issues, but I think it illustrates a problem with the dependency checking mechanism. The state of slim-plugin should be irrelevant to whether I can upload a new bio-formats.
