I pushed the patch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/60e89abe0e61). It will be a part of the 4.4.1 bug fix release which should be out fairly soon.

Thanks, as always, for the contribution. Marking as fixed and closing report.

In octave 4.2.x, "pkg install" support globs for local files or directories.
But in octave 4.4.0, when it meets a glob, it will treat it as an external URL, and then raise an error.

This regression is from changeset 24871:ca43264971ea (bug #50632).

Here is a possible patch to re-enable the detection of globs for local files or directories.
