When I enter these commands, here's what I get --

rug s1 -> ERROR: Argument 's1' is invalid
rug ca -> --- No catalogs available ---

I ran YOU to pick up the latest packages (there were 2) and tried these two
commands again, with the same result. I didn't see anything in the 2
updates that looked like a rug patch, so I guess it's not out there quite
yet. I'll keep running YOU manually periodically and keep an eye out for
this patch. Hopefully, once it comes through my updater will be functional
