Manual installation of an app (LPKG) stops with no log messages about the progress

      Description

      Reproduction Steps:

      1. Start a vanilla 7.0/DXP bundle
        Note: when using a branch (master/7.0.x), you need to delete the bundles of Liferay Push app from LIFERAY_HOME/osgi/modules: remove all the com.liferay.push.notifications.* jar files before starting the server.
      2. Download Liferay CE Push from Marketplace: https://web.liferay.com/marketplace/-/mp/application/48439053
      3. Deploy 'Liferay CE Push.lpkg' (place to the "deploy" folder, see the doc)

      Expectation:
      Successful installation of the app.

      Actual behavior:
      Deploying stops with no messages on console. Portal keeps working.
      There are no additional information can be seen in logs. Gogo shell doesn't list the plugin either. The log contains only:

      14:00:15,789 INFO  [com.liferay.portal.kernel.deploy.auto.AutoDeployScanner][AutoDeployDir:252] Processing Liferay CE Push.lpkg

      Explanation
      All apps (LPKG) which have restart-required=true property set in their liferay-marketplace.properties (inside the *.lpkg file) requires a server restart to complete the installation. This is intended.

      What happens in the background that the LPKG file gets moved to LIFERAY_HOME/osgi/marketplace and will be picked-up, installed and started after the next server restart.

      The standard way to purchase and install apps from Liferay Marketplace is to login to your account from the portal on the Control Panel and purchase the app, then when you click on the “Install” button you get a warning message indicating that the portal instance will shut down and needs to be restarted to complete the installation. (See ).
