What version of Go, VS Code & VS Code Go extension are you using?

  • Run go version to get version of Go from the VS Code integrated terminal.
    • go version go1.16 darwin/amd64
  • Run gopls -v version to get version of Gopls from the VS Code integrated terminal.
    • fish: Unknown command: gopls ( :) how do you all get the gopls version)
  • Run code -v or code-insiders -v to get version of VS Code or VS Code Insiders.
    • 1.54.1
  • Check your installed extensions to get the version of the VS Code Go extension
    • v0.23.0
  • Run Ctrl+Shift+P (Cmd+Shift+P on Mac OS) > Go: Locate Configured Go Tools command.
    • (nothing while I'm on this error state)

Run Preferences: Open Settings (JSON) command to open your settings.json file.
Share all the settings with the go. or ["go"] or gopls prefixes.

Describe the bug

This may be related to golang/vscode-go#1283
My issue is more about why this is happening. Maybe gopls is a better place to open this issue.

I have a dependency:
That has a dependency: v12.1.8
And that has a dependency: v0.3.2
But, I don't want to use v0.3.2 since it has a known issue as you can see here

When I build and run from the terminal, there is no issue. When I use GoLand, there doesn't seem to be an issue there either; however, when I open the project on VS Code, I get error messages such as:
go.sum is out of sync with go.mod. Please update it by applying the quick fix.go list

and the only solutions I get (which don't work) are exactly the same offered on golang/vscode-go#1283

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Clone the repo I created from here
  2. Open VS Code
  3. See go.mod

Thank you for reporting this issue. Looks like it only reproduces in experimentalWorkspaceModule mode. I'll transfer this to the gopls issue tracker for further investigation.
