Spun un a Drupal 8.8.5 but the installation module button is missing

Spun un a Drupal 8.8.5 from the dashboard but from https://dev-example.pantheonsite.io/admin/modules the “Install New Module” button is missing

The workaround that Joseph and Albert found to get that button back again is by visiting https://dev-example.pantheonsite.io/update.php, do the updates from there and the button should be there again.

Would this be a default behavior or ss this an issue with the lastest Drupal? Would it also be platform related? Where would this be best reported to?

This is a Drupal bug: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/3033480

I found that update.php did not always fix it for me. Another workaround that I found to be more effective was:

  1. Un-install the updates module.
  2. Install the updates module again.
  3. Rebuild the cache
