When logged in as the kibana user, plugins fail to install because the package's "/usr/share/kibana/plugins" dir is owned by root.

Additional info:
* Version 6.1.1-1
* Default config (fresh install)

Steps to reproduce:

$ sudo -su kibana
$ ./bin/kibana-plugin install conveyor
DeprecationWarning: os.tmpDir() is deprecated. Use os.tmpdir() instead.
Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error "EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/usr/share/kibana/plugins/.plugin.installing'"

Additional Notes:
This masks another bug, for me. I get the following after changing permissions:
'Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error "No valid url specified."'
I don't think this is Arch specific though.
This task depends upon
