I don't see where you tried to run "clone".

The error message is almost clear; you did not tell mtn what database to
pull _to_; you only told it what database to pull _from_.

_if_ mtn is run in a workspace, it uses the defaults specified in
_MTN/options. But your 'pull' command is not in a workspace; it is in
~/mtn/ooncd, the workspace is in ~/mtn/ooncd/th

So you need:

mtn -d ~/mtn/ooncd/ooncd pull mtn://


cd th
mtn pull mtn://

You can always use either; '-k<name>' is short for '--key=<name>'.
