Ask questionscmd/go: "found, but does not contain package" error refers to replaced version instead of its replacement

<!-- Please answer these questions before submitting your issue. Thanks! -->

What version of Go are you using (go version)?

<pre> $ go version go version go1.13 darwin/amd64 </pre>

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

What did you do?

I have as a tools dependency i.e. I have a top-level tools.go file with these contents:

// +build tools

package tools

import (
	_ ""
	_ ""
	_ ""
	_ ""
	_ ""
	_ ""
	_ ""

I also have one private dependency, so according to go1.13 I'm setting appropriate env variables.

$ go env -w GOPROXY= GONOPROXY=none

When I do go mod tidy, I get the following failure which is very vague:

go: finding latest imports module reading 500 Internal Server Error imports tested by imports module reading 500 Internal Server Error

The interesting thing is when I turn off GOPROXY with go env -w "GOPROXY=", it shows a different error:

go: finding latest imports module (v0.0.0-20190831074504-732c9ca86353) found, but does not contain package imports tested by imports module (v0.1.0) found, but does not contain package

The error module (v0.0.0-20190831074504-732c9ca86353) found, but does not contain package is strange because latest code in that repo does contain that package.

Fwiw, this used to work perfectly fine with go1.12.9 yesterday.

This is my go.mod:

What did you expect to see?

go mod tidy resolve dependencies correctly without error, as it did with go1.12.9.

What did you see instead?

Two issues:

  1. go mod tidy says packages do not exist when they are indeed present.
  2. When GOPROXY is set, it errors out without any meaningful message.

Answer questions heschik module reading 500 Internal Server Error

For this you'll have to check out your Athens instance, no idea what the problem is there.

For the second part, I can reproduce with

git clone
cd kubernetes-drain
go mod init
go test -c

Let me see what I can figure out...
