Description

I have observed users trying to enable events by running

lttng enable-events -a -u

or
lttng enable-events -a -k

with the logic that they are enabling several events. Then they panic when there is an error message. As this is an understandable issue, maybe it would be worth giving a clearer message: "It looks like you are trying to run 'enable-event'" or something similar.

Thank you for mentioning this! Yes, it makes sense to me to handle CLI "typos" where the intention is easy to guess in a way that points the user towards what they want. This could be with an error message and suggestion (or perhaps with an alias although I think that wouldn't be a popular idea).
