I'm in the porocess of setting up COD4 on a linux server. All is well and it runs great but PB is out of date and needs updating otherwise you get kicked. I'm running

./pbsetup.run --update

As the PB website suggests but im getting the following error:

[root@ks3307693 cod4]# ./pbsetup.run --update
pbsetup v2.0

Anyone have any ideas why this is?
