This confuses users, they should only see the notification if they installed the addon. Same for addons marked as broken etc.

Solution: Keep track if addons are installed by the user or as part of a dependency and only show notifications if they where installed by the user.

So adding a column to the DB + object that keeps track if installed by the user or not could be used to solve both issues.

I had a PR for this half a year or so ago, see PR1398 but the opinions seem to be very different so I closed it again. If you feel like it you can write your opinion in the PR. Maybe it could be solved with a setting because I'm sick of all the "foo has been installed" and "foo has been updated" for addons I never manually installed. The PR only addresses the first notification, but with some extra logic I'm sure the second one (notification on update) could be addressed as well.
