Minor: Improved UI messaging for updates

Instead of “Environment X has changes, click the Update button on the Dashboard to apply them”, we now provide additional messaging about what in the environment has changed.

This is one step towards our goal of transparency in stack updates.

Fixed an issue that prevented upgrading New Relic plans from within the Dashboard.
