~$ gotip version
go version devel +f2eea4c1d Mon Nov 16 08:22:10 2020 +0000 linux/amd64

~$ gotip install
no required module provides package working directory is not part of a module

~$ gotip install


The error message from the first go install invocation should have suggested the @latest suffix, since the two commands are semantically very close and the suffix is relatively easy to forget. (See also #42087.)

Marking as release-blocker for Go 1.16 since this is a potential usability issue for #40276.
