Newbie question here, but on the first run of Pkg.add on a fresh install of julia, the system errors out with a message that a user needs to run Pkg.init()
ERROR: Package metadata directory julia/PKG/v0.6/METADATA doesn’t exist; run Pkg.init() to initialize it.
It seems to know that it is missing and needs to be run. Why doesn’t the system just run it? Is there some risk for the system to run that automatically in this case?
