That's the same as ``cvs -v -e -r -s -i -o -n'' -- "version" is a
subcommand like update or import, not an option.

CVS always needs some default CVSROOT setting.  You either need to run
it in a directory that contains a CVS/Root file or, like the above
message says, you need to specify a default CVSROOT on the command line
using the -d global option or you need to set the $CVSROOT environment
variable.  Update will look at the CVS/Root file in each directory being
updated to get the correct CVSROOT for that directory, but it still
needs a default setting as well.
