This is another variation on #41576. The error message that we emit due to an (implicit or explicit) -mod=readonly when the go.sum file is incomplete should suggest some action that the user can take to resolve the error: namely, running go mod tidy or go get -d.$ go version
go version devel +9449a125e Sun Oct 11 17:54:59 2020 +0000 linux/amd64$ go mod init
go: creating new go.mod: module$ go get -d
go: downloading v0.3.0
go: upgrade => v0.3.0$ go list
go: downloading v0.0.0-20191119224855-298f0cb1881e
go: updates to go.sum needed, disabled by -mod=readonly

Marking as release-blocker for Go 1.16 because this will come up a lot more often with the -mod flag defaulting to readonly (#40728).
