bug#39682: 26.3; Help window for list-packages disabled

Problem:
When the following occurs
1) dired+ is loaded
2) package is loaded
3) package is initialized
No *Help* window is opened and the error message: "No Package
Specified" is displayed in the minibuffer.

Test Case:
loading both dired+ and packages AND initializing packages seems to
cause this problem when an abbreviated init.el is used.
If packages is not initialized
OR
dired+ is not loaded
the list-packages *Help* window will be displayed for package info

Code for the test init.el follows:

;; code begins
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elisp") ;; edit for your path to dired+
(require 'package)
;; if the following is executed and dired+ is also loaded
;; the list-packages *Help* window will be disabled
(package-initialize)
;; if dired+ is loaded and (package-initialize) is also executed
;; the list-packages *Help* window will be disabled
(require 'dired+)
;; code ends

;; It appears to me that if either of the two cases occur
;; 1) dired+ is NOT loaded
;; 2) package is NOT initialized
;; Then the *Help* window WILL be displayed
