What Should You Do It You See Duplicate Plugins in Jenkins List of “Available” Plugins?

Problem scenario
You log into Jenkins.  You go to Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Available.   You see the same plugin listed twice (e.g, under different categories such as "Build Reports" or "External Site/Tool Integrations").  What should you do?

This is a workaround: look at the version of the plugins.  Are there duplicates the same version?  If the versions are the same, ignore one duplicate as we do not think it will cause a problem.  For convenience Jenkins displays plugins in different categories if the plugin is a member of two categories.
