I am unable to update any NB plugins because the IDE updater will fail if even one of the plugins the needs updating cannot be updated.  The user should have to option to skip unupdatable plugins and just install the ones that are ready.

As a workaround, you can unselect the plugin which cannot by updated in Tools|Plugins dialog.

What plugin (exact name) should I unselect in "Available plugins" tab of Plugins dialog to avoid "Module Build Harness" installation problem?
