Yes, you need to type the package name. (You will frequently see Unix commands given with a particular flag, but without specifying that you have to type the file name or input file and output file. I suppose I shouldn't follow that habit here.)
But if you ran ./install (without reading the script), rpm will not help you.
Yes, gbell, -U does upgrade, rather than remove. Since the original poster said they wanted to reinstall, it seemed like an easier move.
My apologies for skipping steps.
