Retitling this bug to the remaining feature request, basically that `pkg update a` should be the same as `pkg install a`, does that seem right?

It does already skip non-forge pkgs, in version from stable and default branch from sources.

The other improvements are not in place yet

The pkg update function stops when it finds a package name that is not from forge.

It should skip over all names that it does not recognise and do all packages that are on forge, then at the end it should report all the pkgs that it skipped.

Update should then be improved to also be able to update individual files,

pkg update pkgname

and
pkg update pkgname url
