$ cabal install foo
cabal: user error (Unresolved dependencies: foo -any)
I expect a clearer error message here. Not sure about the exact wording, maybe »No such package available: foo« or »No such package to fetch: foo«.

Already fixed in development version:

$ cabal install foo
cabal: There is no package named foo
I can highly recommend upgrading to the development version. There are many improvements.
