cmd/go: remove ListModules call in runGet

ListModules was used to download .info files so that 'go list -m all'
would succeed later when offline. However, 'go list -m all' may
already fail when offline after 'go mod tidy', so it doesn't make
sense to add complexity to 'go get'.

Instead, remove the ListModules call and fix the test that
accidentally depended on it.

For #42723
