wic: Fix confusing error message
Wic throws this message when any of the build artifacts are not provided: Build artifacts not completely specified, exiting. (Use 'wic -e' or 'wic -r -b -k -n' to specify artifacts) It was not clear which artifact was not specified. Reworked the code to specify list of missed artifacts. Now the message looks like this: The following build artifacts are not specified: bootimg-dir, kernel-dir, native-sysroot [YOCTO #7912] Signed-off-by: Ed Bartosh <>
