copy/paste it in a terminal window after you've logged in.

Open that message so it is displayed in your email agent.  Goto another screen 
and open a terminal window.  Go back to the screen showing the email, and 
holding the left mouse button down, slide the pointer from the beginning of 
that compound command to the end of it so that it is all highlighted.  Now go 
back to the terminal window, and with the mouse pointer where the first 
character you would type would so, hit the middle mouse button, which should 
paste the highlighted text to the terminal screen.

Hit enter, give it your user password and hit the enter key when it asks, and 
go get a cup of coffee.

No, but you will need a working internet connection because all this will come 
from servers on the net and will be 100% up to date.  As will be your install 
when it finishes the 2nd reboot below.
