I have tried to follow the instructions there, but I don't seem to be
able to get it working

In my .emacs file I have:
| (require 'bbdb)
| (bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)
| (bbdb-mua-auto-update-init)

and I have modified the variables mentioned in the README file

bbdb-mua-pop-up is:
| bbdb-mua-pop-up is a variable defined in ‘bbdb.el’.
| Its value is t

| bbdb-mua-auto-update-p is a variable defined in ‘bbdb.el’.
| Its value is ‘query’

but the BBDB buffer is still not updated when I move from one message to
another in Gnus.

I would be happy to do this interactively, but I don't see any command
to close the BBDB buffer? (Do I just have to define my own?)

OK, changing it to (query . query) now BBDB offers me to add a record to
the database.
| bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p is a variable defined in ‘bbdb.el’.
| Its value is (query . query)
| Original value was (search . query)

So, I'm very close to getting it to do what I would like, the only
important missing part is that I would like that once I have pressed ":"
and the BBDB buffer is visible, when I move to another mail message the
contents in the BBDB buffer are updated automatically.
