Several flags not working

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Flags are returning errors when the docs indicate they should work.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.35-DEV

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Debian 64-bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone sync /path/to/folder/ gdrive:backup --stats-one-line
rclone sync /path/to/folder/ gdrive:backup --progress

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Fatal error: unknown flag: {insert every failed flag here, such as progress, stat-one-line}

According to rclone docs here, --progress should work. According to multiple users online, stats-one-line should work as well. Why am I getting these errors?

That's a super ancient version.

Grab the latest

Interesting. Wonder how i got that version. I think by default I installed it via apt. (default sources)

I doubt the repos are very well kept up to date.

Yea I use those flags all the time and never had an issue - so likely a version issue. In any case there's no reason not to update to at least 1.48 stable. It seems that a lot of repos have very old rclone versions according to other posts.
