Example command error in help info and manpage

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

The correct command should be:

rclone config update myremote env_auth true

Well spotted! And welcome to the forum!

If you have a GitHub account, you can report more or less obvious "bugs" like this as issues there. Easier to categorize, prioritize etc. If not sure if it really is an issue, then a question in the forum is perfect, usually in the "Suspected Bug" category.

Thanks for reporting, I will fix it right away! :nerd_face:
