Vertica Installation Error

I am running this command to install Vertica.  Any idea why?  The Id I am using has all the su priviledge.

sudo /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica --hosts,, --rpm /home/verticadb/vertica-7.0.0-2.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm --dba-user verticadb --failure-threshold NONE


And getting this error:


RPM must be upgraded locally, first.
Error: 'NoneType' object is not iterable

    '.'.join([str(x) for x in v.version]),

Installation FAILED with errors.

Installation stopped before any changes were made.
