piaware-config not prompting for password

so I’m going through the claiming process on my receiver and I have to do it manually because flightaware is not detecting my receiver. I entered sudo piaware-config -user Cjtherriault -password

however, the config screen is just giving me a list of available commands and then returning to the prompt. Why is this doing this?

edit: I should mention that I just had to reflash the sd on my Pi and then I reinstalled piaware on the same device.

That command is incorrect. Where are you getting that command from, so I can correct the docs?
