Description of problem:
When using "up2date" in a virtual console (or in an xterm with option --nox),
and asking for the version information using the option "--version", "up2date"
returns a traceback to the shell (see additional information).

This happens in both the up2date version on a freshly installed Phoebe 8.0.94
(up2date-3.1.17-1) and the latest rawhide version of up2date (up2date-3.1.20-1).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "up2date --nox --version" (in an xterm).
2. "up2date --version" (in a virtual console).

Actual Results:  A traceback gets returned.

Expected Results:  Red Hat Update Agent 3.1.x
