go list -m supports module wildcards, and supports version queries. However, if you try to combine a wildcard with a version query, you currently get a misleading malformed module path error rather than the result of applying the query to each module in the build list that matches the wildcard.

example.com$ go version
go version devel +a14e7bf6d Wed Nov 18 06:29:09 2020 +0000 linux/amd64

example.com$ go mod init example.com
go: creating new go.mod: module example.com

example.com$ go get -d golang.org/x/text
go: downloading golang.org/x/text v0.3.4

example.com$ go list -m golang.org/x/...
golang.org/x/text v0.3.4

go list -m: golang.org/x/...@latest: malformed module path "golang.org/x/...": invalid path element "..."
