yes, thanks for the catch.  This made it into the Octave 7.1 release. i just verified the ability to do pkg update -verbose with v7.2.0

closing as fixed.

mike, looks like the following small changes to pkg update's line 729  call to pkg install will make it pass options of interest to pkg install. i posted it as a patch to bug #60574

          options_to_pass = varargin (strncmp (varargin, "-", 1));
          options_to_pass(end+1) = "-forge";
          feval (@pkg, "install", options_to_pass{:}, installed_pkg_name);

I tested it on my current stable build and it worked fine for forcing a global, verbose, nodeps 'update', but can't test it on default without building.  if you could test it out it may take care of this, bug #56128, and some (not all) of bug #60574.  maybe others i haven't seen.  would appreciate if you could test it out.

The "-verbose" option should be accepted by "pkg update -verbose" and passed on to each subsequent "pkg install" command.
