wget missing url

Hello All:

In trying to upgrade using wget I've gotten the following error message:

[root@localhost ergo_sum]# wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A

wget: missing URL

The URL's there, isn't it? So what's wrong?

I can't use yum since it's broken and I can't uninstall or fix. So wget is it until I get to rh 9 (I'm at rh 7.3).

Looking forward to relevant replies.

You don't need the -A except if you do something like -A.rpm to get only the rpms
