Either that, or just fail like;

  ERROR: The "update" target is only implemented for individual package.

And agreed about install, package-install, package, replace, and
everything elsee like that.

Probably fetch and fetch-list should stay, although those seem likely
unintended for users, but perhaps used in mirroring/etc.

I think it would be  good if someone proposed this on tech-pkg and we
did it.
