patch on bug #60574 was pushed as part of the 7.1.0 release, and now pkg update pushes all following options direct to the underlying pkg install call. closing report.

Mike, I just created a bug report about pkg update ignoring -global and -local options before i saw this one. see bug #60574.  As I mention there I think it's a common problem that pkg update accepts options but fails to pass any of them to pkg install after it generates the update list.

it seems maybe they could be combined as a 'pkg update fails to pass options to pkg install' bug.

As with 'pkg install -nodeps' and 'pkg uninstall -nodeps', the 'pkg update -nodeps' command should also work and update installed packages from Octave Forge without checking for missing dependencies.
