Max Reitz - April 13, 2019, 3:20 p.m.
In the "amend" section of 082, we perform a single "convert" test
(namely "convert -o help").  That does not make sense, especially
because we have done exactly that "convert" test earlier in 082 already.

Replacing "convert" by "amend" yields an error, which is correct because
there is no point in "amend" having a default format.  The user has to
either specify the format, or give a file for qemu-img to probe.
