You are running some old version of whois - thanks for providing 
no OS or anything. It quite cleearly told you ityself that it is
in need of upgrading, and the specifics will vary based on what
the heck you are running.

Perhaps a pointy-clicky client is more your speed? the ARIN web
interface would tell you in this instance, and the geektools.com
lookup is fairly bright about looking at multiple registries.
