Inconsistant message in Julia 1.8-rc1

When running tests of the package KiteControllers I see this message:

        Info Packages marked with ⌃ and ⌅ have new versions available, but those with ⌅ cannot be upgraded. To see why use `status --outdated`

If I type status --outdated I see nothing:

(KiteControllers) pkg> status --outdated
Project KiteControllers v0.1.0
Status `~/repos/KiteControllers/Project.toml`

I understand why this is happening. No direct dependency is outdated, but some indirect dependencies are. Nevertheless this message is confusing.

Not sure which behaviour is desired. Either indirect outdated dependencies should not be reported, or there should be a way to see them using a command in the package manager.

Is this a bug?

If yes, where should I report it?

Duplicate of JuliaLang/Pkg.jl#2989 fixed by JuliaLang/Pkg.jl#2990.

OK, thanks for the links. But it is not clear to me if this will be fixed in 1.8. Do you know?

1.8.1 probably.

Good to know.
