doc: -u no longer needed in go get

I gather from golang #33102 that this no longer matters as much
as it once did, but that it is still considered best practice
not to use -u with go get after converting to go.mod.
I had the impression that there were more occurrences of -u in
our docs, but this is the only one I found.

Some folks like "go get", some prefer "gohack get", but at the
moment I like "git clone" and "go install".

Fixes #626.

About the project

Upspin is an experimental project to build a framework for naming and sharing files and other data securely, uniformly, and globally: a global name system of sorts.

It is not a file system, but a set of protocols and reference implementations that can be used to join things like file systems and other storage services to the name space.

Performance is not a primary goal. Uniformity and security are.

Upspin is not an official Google product.


Upspin has rough edges, and is not yet suitable for non-technical users.
