Update does nothing when package restore has not run

description

Currently when you check out a project from source control and execute: nuget.exe update packages.config
Nothing happens. No updates are done, and no error or anything is raised. When you execute package restore first with nuget.exe install the update works correctly.

Yes, this is by-design, although we admit it's a bad design. nuget.exe update has to follow nuget.exe install.

We do have plan to fix this behavior with new commands.
