I just added another error message to it, before those:

  ERROR: COMPLETION-BASH is not intended to be sourced directly, but
  rather added to a bash-completion package installation.

Is that clear enough?  If you have an /etc/bash_completion.d/
directory, copy it there and it will work.  On Fedora, that's
in the bash-completion package.
