x/tools/gopls: import errors are not disappearing on first file of project #37195

When I create a new project, I run go mod init and then create the first .go file for that package. I first type

package main

then proceed to type

func main() {

When I hit save, the import log shows up, which is correct but then the error on the log.Println() does not disappear.

The error messages that keep coming up are: "getting file for AllImportsFixes: command-line-arguments has no metadata" and "diagnose: no workspace packages: command-line-arguments has no metadata".

This issue seems to be on go/packages/golist.go#L289 and seems to be caused from falling back to using an ad-hoc package is there is an error loading the package, I think the problem here is that if the file does not have a package line yet, then the package that gets returned from go/packages will be "command-line-arguments". gopls caches this package and attempts to keep loading this package on file changes and never gets any metadata back.

@ridersofrohan ridersofrohan added this to the gopls/v0.4.0 milestone Feb 12, 2020
