    Porcelain scripts: Rewrite cryptic "needs update" error message

    artagnon authored gitster committed
    Although Git interally has the facility to differentiate between
    porcelain and plubmbing commands and appropriately print errors,
    several shell scripts invoke plubming commands triggering cryptic
    plumbing errors to be displayed on a porcelain interface. This patch
    replaces the "needs update" message in git-pull and git-rebase, when
    `git update-index` is run, with a more friendly message.
