And I've now figured out why this happens. If you don't specify a target
with "-t", you get the above messages. The problem is in the parsetarget
function; if it doesn't find a matching target, it will set the strref
to an empty string.

As currently implemented, the checks for the strings "none" and
"deprecated", as well as the syntax check, isn't useful when doing an
update - since they'd only be applied to the specified target - and
should be disabled, IMHO.
