Let me add just one other possibility: you don't have an update_amber script
in your amber11 directory, but you *do* have an update_amber script in your
path (somehow). So, be sure that your $AMBERHOME environment variable points
to a directory tree headed by "amber11"; look in the $AMBERHOME directory to
see if there is really an update_amber script there. As Jason already pointed
out, it would require some unusual combination of events for that to happen,
since the update_amber script is a fairly recent addition.
