Update of bug #41260 (project octave):

              Item Group:                   Other => Incorrect Result       
                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #1:

This actually looks like a regression in the urlread function. If you agree
with my diagnosis I'd rather retitle this bug to reflect that. The pkg
function is using urlread and expecting it to return two return values.
Observe in octave 3.6.4

octave-3.6.4:1> [a, b] = urlread
a = 
b = 0

while in 3.8.0

octave-cli-3.8.0:1> [a, b] = urlread
error: element number 1 undefined in return list

If this is fixed, then you'll get this error message from pkg, which I do get
in 3.6.4:

error: get_forge_pkg: package not found: "stats". Maybe you meant
