In Go 1.16, the go command will suggest commands the user can run to fix common errors in go.mod and go.sum like missing requirements and sums. These hints are important, since a few errors will become a lot more common with -mod=readonly enabled by default (#40728); previously, these errors were fixed automatically by go build, go list, and other commands.

In some cases, different variations of the same hint may be printed several times. For example, the project below has a go.sum file with some missing sums.

go build .

-- use.go --
package use

import (
	_ ""
	_ ""
-- go.mod --
module m

The command go build . prints the two errors below:

use.go:4:2: missing go.sum entry for module providing package; to add:
	go get
use.go:5:2: missing go.sum entry for module providing package; to add:
	go get

When there are similar errors like this, we should try to consolidate them. In this case, we should print something like:

missing go.sum entries for multiple modules; to add:
	go get m
