How to check if it's your case?
- Open your Joomla administrator panel
- Go to Extensions->Manage->Install
- If you see this information: "No installation plugin has been enabled. At least one must be enabled to be able to use the installer. Go to the Plugin Manager to enable the plugins."
- Now click the "Plugin manager" button.
- If you do not see any plugin there and you see the information " There are no plugins installed matching your query", it looks like you have this error and you should fix it.
Luckily there is a quick solution.

- Go to Extensions->Manage->Discover
- You'll see there a list of discovered plugins (if not just click "Discover")
- Now check all the plugins and click "Install"
- You should see the message: "Discover install successful".
- Now Go to Extensions->Manage->Install and click the "Plugin manager" button.
- Plugins should be visible now. Check the installation plugins and click "enable"
- Now you can go back to Extensions->Manage->Install
You are now able to upload & install Joomla extension.
