      The bug

      Using /trigger for a player who has no score for an objective (see MC-79255) shows the error message commands.trigger.invalidObjective:

      Invalid trigger name [objective name]

      This is pretty misleading and should instead be something like

      The player [player name] has no score entry for the objective [objective name]

      If this is no bug, tab-completing the objective argument on /trigger should not return invalid objectives.

      How to reproduce

      /scoreboard objectives add someObjective trigger
      /trigger someObjective set 1

      Will print "Invalid trigger name someObjective" in chat. Note that trigger objectives that aren't enabled print a different message: "Trigger someObjective is not enabled". Giving the objective a value or enabling its trigger for the player will make it work:

      /scoreboard players set @p someObjective 0
      /trigger someObjective set 1

      Will set someObjective to 1 for me.
