Open the plugin installer (Plugins > Fetch Plugins). The status bar at the bottom of the opened window still indicates the old install directory ('The plugins will be installed to ~/.qgis/python/plugins'). It should be updated to the new directory ('The plugins will be installed to ~/.qgis2/python/plugins').
The file which needs to be changed is python/plugins/plugin_installer/qgsplugininstallerbase.ui (git diff attached), but not sure if there are related changes that would need to be made for i18n.
