Only show admins the Update alerts

    Every time this comes up there are two sides: one is people who don't want non-admins to see the notices b/c they can't act on them. The other wants the notices to be shown b/c in many situations (especially CMS use where there are many users), admins don't log in at all unless there's a problem, while authors log in frequently and can ping the admin to perform an update when they see a notice in their author dashboard. Because we feel staying updated is of high importance, core will continue show update notices to roles other than admin, and will leave the fine-grained control of who sees update notices to plugins.
