I think the options to jmod install needs to be re-examined (more
generally the CLIs need a bit of an overhaul, jpkg more so). As it
stands the install command can't always figure out what you want to do.
If you give it a path to a jmod file or a directory of classes then it
gets it right. However it also allows a module query and this isn't easy
to disambiguate from the case where you give it a path to something that
doesn't exist. I'll create a bug for this so that it's not forgotten but
I think it's something that will resolve itself anyway once someone gets
around to cleaning up the CLIs.
