[Meta] Use Install/Uninstall consistently for turning modules/themes on/off (not Enable)

Problem/Motivation

There is a UI that lets you turn a module/theme on/off. Turning it on adds configuration and often database tables. Turning it off removes content, configuration, and/or database tables. The UI for this should consistently use the verbs "Install" and "Uninstall". Currently it mostly does use these verbs, but it says "Enable" in a few places.

Proposed resolution

The UI for this should consistently use the verbs "Install" and "Uninstall" for turning a module/theme on/off.
Comments and variables.

Fix hook_update_projects_alter() and update.report.inc (and possibly other places) still have references to disabled extensions.

Will mean a lot of data structures passed to/returned from hooks will change, but might just have to be a CR for that - we can check if those hooks are actually implemented in contrib or not.
