Yeah, could be it.

[root at post ~]# pear -c horde config-show
ERROR: horde/ is not a valid config file or is corrupted.
[root at post ~]# pear config-show -c horde
Configuration (channel pear.horde.org):

-c actually means configuration file when it is just right after "pear". 
Probably worth mentioning in the INSTALL docs.

I don't have a test machine to test this with "upgrade" option.
